Patient Participation Group (PPG) Information

The Patient Participation Group (PPG) continue to work with the Practice for the Practice. The PPG is a committee of voluntary patients who supports the work of the practice. The committee meet monthly along with practice representatives to discuss matters arising and to discuss ongoing suggested improvements within the practice. The PPG organised a patients’ questionnaire asking for patient views on general services provided and our surgery environments.The results of these questionnaires were amalgamated and discussed by the PPG and various issues were highlighted. We have always taken on board suggestions and comments from our patients and have for a long time held a suggestion box in the reception areas for this purpose.

As a result of the questionnaire we have replaced the seating at our branch surgery in Sandiway, removed the advertising screens at Danebridge to be replaced with TVs and are having self book-in terminals installed at The Kingsmead Medical Centre and The Sandiway Surgery. We have also provided high-rise chairs at all three of our sites. We hope that these improvements are welcomed by our patients and you continue to find the Newsletter informative!

The PPG would welcome any views and/or concerns you may have, but they must be about general issues.You can address any mail c/o Danebridge Medical Centre or email your comments to You can also drop a note in at any of the three reception desks. The PPG would love to hear your views and concerns, but they must be about general issues the PPG can not cover personal matters.
