Patient Participation Group

 Following the completion of the merger of the Orchard Medical Centre and Uley Surgery the two Patient Participation Groups formally merged in December 2014.  Since then the group continue to be actively involved in assisting and supporting the practice in its future planning and helping to improve services.  The Group volunteer and help at the annual flu clinics at the Cam Surgery by putting patients at ease, helping direct them in the right direction and if appropriate helping the patients use the machine to measure their height, weight and blood pressure.

 

 One key area the Patient Participation Group is particularly keen to help with is health promotion events for our patients.  They are keen to provide (initially small low key) events promoting health topics such as dementia which they feel would be of benefit to many patients.  These events will bring together specialists in the chosen area to provide help, advice and general information.  These events will also be a chance for patients to meet together and share experiences.  More information about specific events will be given when available.

 The Patient Participation Group consists of a group of interested people who meet on a quarterly basis, alternating meetings between Uley and Cam and also lunchtime and evening meetings. The chair person of the PPG is Caroline Penley.  We now have a well-established Group, however we always encourage anyone interested in joining the Group to contact the practice manager in the first instance.
