Patient Participation Group

Vale Medical Group has an established Patient Participation Group with the aim of:
  • fostering patient participation in health care
  • improving communication between staff and patients and
  • allowing patients to have a say in the future direction of local health provision
The group operates within a nationally-proposed frame of reference, but largely it’s up to members how it works. Meetings are generally held at Long Clawson. Members can commit as much or as little time as they like, and contribute in whatever way they feel comfortable.
  • Contribute to continuous improvement of local services
  • Help patients to take an active role in their health
  • Provide practical support and help to implement change
  • Influence the wider NHS and give patients a say
The group are always keen to attract new members from both of our surgeries. If you would like more information, please contact Alix Knight by email or on 01664 822214
