We have an established Patient Participation Panel, a group of patients who meet monthly top discuss issues affecting the way primary care is developing, and the impact on the practice, as well as discussing general issues as to what the practice does.
This group has developed a constitution, which is available for you to read:
Minutes of meetings
A reference copy is available to read, in a file in the waiting area. They are also available on request from the Practice Manager.
The panel does not meet during August.
A separate monthly register of attendance is kept by the Practice Manager.
Early evening meetings
We have 3 meetings per year that take place in the early evening, so workers and others who have day time commitments can attend. The 2016 dates for these meetings are:
- April 04th 5 pm - 6.30 pm
- June 06th AGM 5 pm followed by meeting at 5.30 pm
- September 05th 5 pm - 6.30 pm

New Members Wanted!
We are always keen to hear from patients who are interested in getting involved in the work of the patient panel.
We usually meet on the first Monday of the month 1pm - 2.30pm (the second Monday if the first is a Bank Holiday), but we do have 3 early evening meetings per year. The list of meetings for 2016 is published below - please feel free to come along.

We are especially keen to hear from young people, those who work, or ethnic minority groups.
For those who can't make the first Monday of the month meeting....
We are open to establishing a second evening group for those who may study or work or care for someone during the, and who would only be able to meet early evening (for example, 5.30 pm to 7 pm).
We are also looking into the idea of starting up a virtual group; for those who would like to be involved in discussions about the practice, what we do and how we do it, but feel unable to come to a meeting, then we could set up a virtual group, whereby members can have an e-forum or discussion, or simply e-mail in responses. If you are keen on this idea, please let the practice manager know.
We are your patient panel: we look forward to hearing from you, and to working on your behalf over the coming months.
