The purpose of the group is to give Practice staff and patients the opportunity to discuss topics of mutual interest in their practice.

  • To act as a representative group that can be called upon to influence the local provision of Health and Social Care.   
  • To involve further patients from the wider population.
  • To promote a patient perspective and enable patients to access and make the best use of available healthcare.
  • To improve communication between the service providers, the group, and the wider population.
  • To provide a forum where the Practice can consult patients on a variety of issues.
