Did you know we have a patient participation group?
The purpose of the PPG group is to help us access and use your ideas for new projects, and gaining your views as to how the practice can improve and develop.
See our patient participation group page for further information.
If any patients require information in another format or wish to communicate with the practice in another format, please ask at reception and we will be happy to try and provide this for you. Eg, large font, braille or use of portable hearing loop.
Patients may be aware that we have a patient participation group which meets regularly throughout the year at the surgery. We do understand that many people would not be able to attend this group which is why you may be interested in joining our virtual group.
This group would be contacted via email and would be sent short survey's and asked for opinions on particular matters. This may allow you to participate in your local surgery and give us your views, without having to find the time to attend a meeting. It's something you can access at your convenience and hopefully would only take a few minutes of your time on an adhoc basis.
If you are interested in being a member of this group, please inform our reception team, giving us your name and email address.
We have a trainee counsellor at the surgery.
These sessions are provided at a low cost rate with a suggested donation up to £10 per session.
We also have a private counsellor available. These sessions are £25 per session.
If you are aged 18 and over and feel this service would be helpful to you, please discuss this with your doctor or our practice nurse who would be happy to refer you or you can self-refer to any of the counselling services.
The Surgery has staff training quarterly on a Wednesday afternoon 2pm-5pm. During this time patients will be able to contact us by telephone as usual, dispensary services will be available but there will be no routine appointments available during this time.
The dates of the staff training will be published on the homepage a number of weeks in advance.
