Would you be interested in giving your views on issues important to patients and the practice?

If yes, you may want to join our newly formed Patient Participation Group.  We will keep in touch with group members by letter or email as well as hold monthly meetings.

If you would be interested please email sa87022@nhs.net and we will be in touch.

Report on the Patient Participation Group (PPG)

In April 2011 a Patient Participation service was introduced by the Department of Health.  Northumberland Park Medical Group signed up to this service with the aim of involving patients in decisions about the practice and the services provided to our patients.

We have still been unable to get representation from the following groups:

  • Patients who work
  • Patients from other ethnic backgrounds
  • Patients with young children
  • Patients under the age of 16
  • Patients with learning disabilities

We do not yet have a group which is reflective of our practice population.  We continue to advertise the group and hope to recruit some patients to participate in this worthwhile activity.
