We have formed a Patient Participation Group (PPG) at Balmore Park Surgery. Currently the Group has 23 members consisting of 12 women and 11 men with an age group mix from 41 - 81. The Group consists of a cross section of our patient list with a Chairman, Vice Chair and Secretary. Meetings are held quarterly on a Wednesday evening at the Practice.
The Group is free to identify its own priorities for discussion and liaison with the practice team.
The aims of the PPG are:
The Group assists the practice in discussing and preparing appropriate questions for our patient surveys.
In addition the Group is in communication with the North & West Reading Commissioning Group of which Balmore Park Surgery is a member. The role of the Group is to communicate health related decisions at commissioning level to our patients.
If you wish to sign up to our PPG, please ask for a sign up form at reception, or contact Eiliis McCarthy, Practice Manager.
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. If you would like any further information, please contact Eiliis McCarthy, Practice Manager.
