Leen View Surgery has an active patient group who meet on a regular basis to discuss issues such as patient access, practice development and improvements.  If you are interested in joining, please print and complete this form and it in at reception.

At present we would be particularly interested to hear from the following groups of people:

  • Anyone aged under 25
  • Anyone who has very young children
  • Workers
  • Retirees
  • People with long term conditions
  • People from non-British ethnic groups

The Aims of the Patient Participation Group:

“To work with their practice to provide practical support, to help patients take more responsibility for their own health and to provide strategic input and advice. PPGs are based on cooperation between the practice staff and patients”.

Purpose of a PPG:

  • To give practice staff and patients the opportunity to discuss topics of mutual interest in their own practice
  • A forum for patients and staff to improve and develop services within the practice by co-production
  • To provide an opportunity for patients to make positive and constructive suggestions/ideas about the practice and specific medical conditions as an ‘expert’ or ‘experienced patient’
  • To encourage health education activities within the practice
  • To involve further patients from the wider population
  • To involve patient participation in future commissioning of Health Provision

Benefits for the patient:

  • Patients will be more responsible for their own health
  • Patients will have a better understanding and knowledge of the practice and its staff
  • Patients will benefit from improved communications between patients and staff

This group allows up to date information to be given to patients and will inform what decisions can be influenced and what cannot. It will also allow the practice staff to gain an understanding from the patient’s perspective. Patients will have a forum to suggest positive ideas and voice concerns

Benefits for the practice:

  • GPs and their staff will be able to plan services jointly with patients in order to increase their effectiveness
  • They will be able to get help from patients in meeting targets and objectives
  • They will have a forum to voice concerns, ideas and suggestions to patients
  • They will get closer to the community for whom they care
