Patient Participation Group

The staff at Yorkshire Street Surgery feel that it is very important that we listen to our patients and act on what they tell us. In order to achieve this the surgery will be organising a Patient Participation Group and is actively looking for patients who wish to be involved in this group/process.

The group will be arranged as a forum to discuss the views of patients to ensure that your experiences are taken into account when planning the range and quality of the services we offer now, and in the future.

We understand that not everyone can attend the group meetings due to family or work commitments etc, but if you wish to be a part of the group then you can email, fax or write to us with any suggestions you have that may improve the surgery and the services we offer.

Alternatively, there is a Suggestions box located at the reception desk in the surgery where you can post your suggestions. All suggestions received will be looked at by the Management Team and discussed within Practice Meetings.

If you are interested in joining this group please provide the following details:

  1. Name
  2. Address
  3. Contact Number

What is a Patient Participation Group

A selection of patients and practice staff who decide ways of making a positive contribution to the services and facilities offered by the practice to our patients.

The practice is committed to providing excellent healthcare, advice and support to all our patients.

  • To give patients the opportunity to discuss topics of mutual interest in their practice
  • To provide the means for patients to make positive suggestions about the practice
  • To involve further patients from the wider population.

What does Patient Participation Group Involve?

We are looking to involve patients in decisions made about the services we provide or looking to develop in the future. The group will be able to contribute constructive feedback, suggestions and have a role in the development of any changes made to existing or new services.
