The surgery may send you a survey from time to time or a simple response email but this will help to gain a representative view of the Oakhill Surgery patient population.
Be part of this group and let the surgery know what is important to you.
To find out more about what a PPG is please visit the National Association of Patient Participation website.
The main purpose of the Virtual PPG is to have a large group of patients that the Oakhill Surgery Patient Participation Group can periodically use to survey views on health services provided by the surgery and more county wide. The more we have the more likely we are to make appropriate recommendations for change.
If you are interested in being part of this group please let reception know or complete our PPG Application form
You will only be contacted by email and can respond as little or as much as you like.

The PPG felt it would be useful to put a summary of its quarterly meetings on this site.
For NHS Somerset the gross annual cost of prescription medicines waste is £3 million per year.
We all have a role to play in reducing this waste. There are many factors, see the campaign leaflet, but one of the things we can do as a patient is to order only what we are going to take. Always check before you leave the surgery or pharmacy that you have only got what you need as sadly once you have left even unopenned packs cannot be reused.
