Patient Representative Group

We are encouraging patients to give their views about how the practice is doing. We would like to be able to find out the opinions of as many patients as possible and are asking if people would like to provide their email addresses so we can contact you by email every now and again to ask you a question or two.

Are you interested in joining?

If you could fill in this quick form we will add your email address to the contact list. Your contact details will only be used for this purpose and will be kept safely.

Common patient questions and answers

Q. Why are you asking people for their contact details?
A. We would like to be able to contact people occasionally to ask them questions about the surgery and how well we are doing to identify areas for improvement.

Q. Will my doctor see this information?
A. This information is purely to contact patients to ask them questions about the surgery, how well we are doing and ensure changes that are being made are patient focused. If your doctor is responsible for making some of the changes in the surgery they might see general feedback from patients.

Q. Will the questions you ask me be medical or personal?
A. We will only ask general questions about the practice, such as short questionnaires.

Q. Who else will be able to access my contact details?
A. Your contact details will be kept safely and securely and will only be used for this purpose and will not be shared with anyone else.

Q. How often will you contact me?
A. Not very often...

Q. What is a patient group/patient participation group?
A. This is a group of volunteer patients who are involved in making sure the surgery provides the services its patients need.

Q. Do I have to leave my contact details?
A. No, but if you change your mind, please let us know.

Q. What if I no longer wish to be on the contact list or I leave the surgery?
A. We will ask you to let us know by email if you do not wish to receive further messages.
