General Practice Transparency Notice for GPES Data for Pandemic Planning and Research (COVID-19)
The practice has engaged with patients in setting up a Patient Representative Group. This PRG is currently represented by 8 patients who are registered with the practice. The PRG meet on a bi-monthly basis in the surgery (also in attendance is Michelle Farrell, Practice Manager) and discussions take place on various health services and the future of NHS services to come, these meetings are held at 15:00 on a Monday and last approximately 1 hour.
The practice is keen to engage patients as much as possible in delivering the health services as requested by our patients and we feel that patient engagement has a very important part to play in the future planning of health services.
Any patients wishing to join our PRG can speak to the Practice Manager, Michelle Farrell, for further information.

We would like to know how we can improve our service to you and how you perceive our surgery and staff.
To help us with this, we are setting up a virtual patient representation group so that you can have your say. We will ask the members of this representative group some questions from time to time, such as what you think about our opening times or the quality of the care or service you received. We will contact you via email and keep our surveys succinct so it shouldn’t take too much of your time.
We aim to gather around a hundred patients from as broad a spectrum as possible to get a truly representative sample. We need young people, workers, retirees, people with long term conditions and people from non-British ethnic groups.
If you are happy for us to contact you occasionally by email please click the link below to open the sign-up form and complete all the fields.
