We would like to know how we can improve our service to you and how you perceive our surgery and staff.
To help us with this, we are setting up a virtual patient representation group so that you can have your say. We will ask the members of this representative group some questions from time to time, such as what you think about our opening times or the quality of the care or service you received. We will contact you via email and keep our surveys succinct so it shouldn’t take too much of your time.
We aim to gather around a hundred patients from as broad a spectrum as possible to get a truly representative sample. We need young people, workers, retirees, people with long term conditions and people from non-British ethnic groups.
If you are happy for us to contact you occasionally by email please click the link below to open the sign-up form and complete all the fields.

If you prefer, you can download the sign up form as a pdf document, print it out, complete it and return it to the practice.

We will be in touch shortly after we receive your form. Please note that no medical information or questions will be responded to.
Many thanks for your assistance

Patient Participation Group
What is a PPG?
The Patient Participation Group (PPG) is a group of patients registered with the surgery who have no medical training but have an interest in the services provided.
The aim of the PPG is to represent patients' views and cross barriers, embracing diversity and to work in partnership with the surgery to improve common understanding.
The PPG members profile reflect a range of age, gender and ethnicity.
We also welcome new members from patients who have joined the practice recently.
Please speak to / email our Practice Manager, Abhi Sivananthan, if you are interested in joining the group:
How does the practice engage with the PPG?
- Face-to-face group meetings
- Email for personal discussion
- Open forum via social media [please contact Abhi]
Tell us what you think about the alternative ways to access GP services
The Covid-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic has obliged GP practices to provide a smaller range of services. Partly this is for safety reasons, and partly because the hospitals have restricted referrals and test requests from GPs.
We continue to provide consultations, repeat prescriptions, medical certificates and letters, and we are able to do this in a number of ways:
- telephone call
- AccuRx video call (via smart phone)
- e-Consult (24/7 online service)
- Doctor Link
- EMIS Patient Access online
- face-to-face at the practice on a solo basis without waiting
- referral to GP Hub
- referral to Coronavirus Hot Hub
With the gradual relaxation of the lockdown, we look forward to reopening at some time.
We would like to know, when we reopen, if it will be useful to keep some of these options available to you, or mothball all of them until a future pandemic?
