The practice is currently looking for patients to volunteer to join our Patient Participation Group (PPG).
We are looking for patients from all age groups, social and cultural backgrounds to re-establish the patient participation group. All that is required is that you attend regularly and participate in open and honest discussion.
The Partners are keen to involve patients in the development of patient services and care at Northolme. The practice believes that the Patient Participation Group is invaluable in acting as a main interface between patients at the practice.
The Patient Participation Group can work together with the practice to influence the decisions that are made on behalf of patients about the services that are to be available to them.

What Does A Patient Participation Group Do?
This group will work with the practice to:
Be a forum to feedback to the practice suggestions for continual improvement to services provided by the practice in order to improve services offered to patients
To improve communication between the practice and its patients, to promote a clearer understanding from both sides
Help patients to take more responsibility for their health; and
Provide practical support and help to implement changes
