Our Patient Participation Group (PPG) are our patient voice and represent our patients. They meet regularly with practice staff to discuss developing and improving our services. They make positive and constructive suggestions about the practice and encourage health education activities within the practice. It is a forum in which patients can suggest positive ideas and voice concerns.
Patients benefit from improved communications between patients and staff, and the practice is able to plan services jointly with patients in order to increase our effectiveness and is able to get help from patients in meeting targets and objectives.
Our PPG set up a new ‘Walk for Health’ in Kirkham and surrounding areas. The first walk was on Wednesday 31st May 2017 and was a resounding success. The walk is now weekly – meet at Ash Tree House on Wednesdays at 1pm. Please wear sensible shoes and clothing and bring some water. They are currently starting work on new projects – updates will be posted as soon as they are available.
Due to current restrictions our PPG group now meet virtually.
