Hadleigh and Boxford Patient Participation Group (PPG)
Are you interested in having your say?
Members of the PPG become involved in the range and quality of the services provided and take part in the decision making process that leads to any change in existing services. The PPG takes a leading part in developing patient surveys, sharing results, newsletters and patient feedback.
Hadleigh and Boxford Patient Participation Group was formed as an email group in 2011, with the intention of patients becoming more of an integral part of the practice.
As of May 2016, the PPG developed and improved by changing from an email group to one which meets together on a bi-monthly basis. The PPG is coordinated by the Practice and the patient members. Group meetings are also chaired by a patient member.
It is our aim that we have a broad range of patient members to get a truly representative group. At present, the PPG members consist of twelve patients, Tracey Squirrell (Practice Manager) and Dr. Iain Lyons.
We appreciate that everyone leads full busy lives and that our group is small and does not reflect the practice population. With this in mind, we have created a Virtual discussion group to encourage wider patient participation and representation. This means we can keep in touch via an on-line discussion board.
If you are a patient at Hadleigh or Boxford, you are passionate and committed to improving quality care and you would like to volunteer to be part of our PPG or Virtual Group, then we would like to hear from you. We have developed a very simple sign up form which you can download, complete and return to the practice or email to Tracey Squirrell, details below:
