Welcome to the Patient Participation Group.
Date of next meeting :
Thursday 9th January 1 - 2pm
Quay Lane Surgery
Please note that the meeting due to be held on Thursday 28th November has been cancelled.
We need your help.
What are we doing?
We are adding to the equipment and services available for practice use that is not supplied under the NHS.
We are represented on the Cornwall Commissioning Group advising on what services are needed in Cornwall.
We are active in reviewing services offered by local clinics and hospital to ensure that patient needs are being met.
We carried out the latest patient survey in conjunction with the surgery staff.
We need virtual and personal members to add to our knowledge.
Virtual members can put in their suggestions by email and monitor them on the web site.
Your help is needed in identifying areas where either the practice or other NHS services could be better for our area.
Personal members do the same job but are able to vote and make executive decisions at the regular meetings (about 5 per year).
If you know something that will improve patient experience within the NHS let us know.
If you have drive to improve our NHS come and join us.

By listening to your experiences of publicly funded health and social care services they are able to inform decisions made by the commissioners and providers of them.
This means your voice is heard by those planning and delivering services and can influence positive outcomes.
