North House Surgery PPG was set up in September 2011 and first met in November 2011.
Everyone registered with the surgery and all doctors and staff of the practice are automatically members of the group. The 15 elected committee members meet at least eight times a year. Elections are run in May and nominations for new members are invited then.
The role of the PPG includes:
- being a critical friend to the practice
- Advising the practice on the patient perspective
- Encouraging patients to take greater responsibility for their own and their families health
- Carrying out research into the views of those who use the practice.
Anyone wishing any information on the Practice Patient Participation Group (PPG), please contact Lynn Blair at the surgery.
