The Marlow Medical Group Patient Participation Group is eager to ensure that our patients are actively involved in deciding how the health services they use should develop.
The aim of the Patient Participation Group is to give patients, GPs and practice staff an opportunity to meet, to exchange ideas and to keep you informed of the latest developments within the health service and primary care. Feedback of your experiences will also help us to improve the services we offer.
You will be invited to attend our Patient Participation Group meetings which are held twice yearly. We may also occasionally contact you to ask you to complete a survey or to try out a new service. You decide how often and when you would like to respond and it is not compulsory to attend any of the meetings.
Patient Participation Groups are invaluable for patients and practices alike. As a patient, the group allows you to:
PPGs can also develop to influence the wider NHS, most notably the decisions that are made on behalf of patients about the services that are to be available to them.
If you have not registered to be a member of our Patient Group then we would welcome you to sign up now.
As a member of our patient group we will contact you to find out what changes you would most like to see at this Practice. We will ask questions from time to time, such as what you think about our opening times, getting an appointment, reception issues or the quality of the care or service you received. You can also get involved with a debate online.
We will contact you via email and keep our surveys short so it shouldn't take too much of your time. You decide how often and when you would like to respond.
This is your opportunity to have a say in the changes and decisions taken within the Practice about the services we offer.
