Ashworth Street Patient Group (APG)
Ashworth Street Patient Participation Group (the PPG) was formed in October 2011. It is made up of 15 members representing a broad cross-section of patients within the Practice. This group meets on the first Wednesday of alternate months to discuss issues of interest or concern regarding the policies and procedures of the practice.
We present the patients’ viewpoint to the partners. We produce minutes of every meeting and publish regular newsletters in order to keep the patient community informed of our work. We also conduct patient questionnaires – so that patients can feedback their views and opinions on the services provided at the Practice. Results of the questionnaire are published on the website, through the noticeboard and the newsletters. Subgroups investigate some matters in greater detail before reporting back to the main PPG. Partners and visitors from outside the Practice deliver presentations on topics of interest as well as keeping the group abreast of current issues within the NHS and General Practice.
We hope the Patients’ Group provides an important pivotal link between the partners and patients of the Practice.
In addition to the PPG there is a larger database of patients who have shown an interest in providing suggestions for the group without necessarily being involved in the detailed discussions. This database is open to all patients and forms can be obtained either through reception or downloaded from the website.
The PPG has its own dedicated notice board inside the surgery on the ground floor. If you have any ideas, suggestions, improvements or concerns and you would like the PPG to look at these on your behalf, just pop them into the suggestion box attached to the notice board.
Notice to Patients
Our Patient Participation Group is established in order to ask patients for their views on our services.
The Patient Participation Group aims to provide an independent overview of services and facilities at Ashworth Street Surgery.
Patients on the PPG help us conduct surveys, write reports and generally get involved with the Practice and other patients.
The Patients’ Group is there to ensure that the views of patients are fed into the Practice regarding the services they deliver.
Would you like to get involved in shaping the services we offer at the Practice and be a member of the Patient Participation Group (PPG)?
Could you spare a couple of hours a month to get involved and attend a bi-monthly PPG meeting?
If so complete the form and hand in to a receptionist.
