Patient Participation Group

Help us make the surgery better

Patient Participation Groups play an important role in the future of healthcare and we value your opinion. By becoming a member of the North Petherton Surgery PPG you can:

  • Help provide patient perspective
  • Promote health matters
  • Improve communications
  • Influence the development of services

History of the group

The North Petherton Surgery Patient Participation Group (PPG) was formed in October 2011. The PPG play an important role in helping to shape the services and facilities available at the practice. The patient group is independent of the surgery but works closely with the Practice Manager and GP’s to help build an understanding of the patient’s perspective.

We are keen to hear your views on any aspects of your experience of the surgery. There are suggestion cards in the waiting room for patients to give feedback and ideas and all comments are shared with us.

Please post them in the script postbox by the front door. You can contact us this way or alternatively please contact Dee Campbell at the Surgery on 01278 662223 or deanna.campbell1@nhs.net

Virtual Group

If you are interested in providing the surgery with feedback and ideas to help us improve our services you would be welcome to join our online patient group. This forum will run alongside our Patient Participation Group (PPG). The virtual group is a great opportunity for those who cannot commit to attendance at meetings, to let us know their thoughts in a user friendly way and at a convenient time.

If you would like to register for this service, please email deanna.campbell1@nhs.net
