Collingham Medical Centre's first PPG was established in 1982.
The current Collingham Medical Centre PPG first met October 2017 and maintains a maximum of 16 members.
The National Association of Patient Participation (NAPP) on http://www.napp.org.uk/ defines a patient group as a unique partnership between patients and their practice which is essential to and results in high quality and responsive care.
PPGs can work in partnership with their practice to:
- help patients to take more responsibility for their health.
- contribute to the continuous improvement of services and quality of care.
- foster improved communication between the practice and its patients.
- provide practical support for the practice and help to implement change.
What the PPG is not
- a forum to discuss patient health care concerns, these should be directed to the NHS Organisation that is provided care
Our PPG members are:
Linda Dales - Chairperson
Michael Davies - Vice Chairperson
Rosemary Eaton - Secretary
Keith Needham - Treasurer
Julie Reid, Executive Partner of Collingham Medical Centre, supports/attends all meetings. Each meeting we introduce a member of the team, their role to help support the PPG understanding of the services at Collingham.
Our Terms of Reference have been agreed at the December 2017 and during January 2018 some members will be supporting patients to offer feedback about services and navigate around services.
