Patient Participation Group

Patient Participation Group

This meets on a regular basis - usually every two months - and at the moment has 18 members. We are actively trying to recruit so if you have an hour to spare on a lunchtime once every two months, please leave your details with any of the reception staff or drop your contact details in the box provided in the foyer at the Health Centre.

With their help we have managed to complete a patient survey which provided excellent results and also gave us a few ideas of ways to improve certain areas.



About us

We are a group of Newgate registered patients who meet with the surgery, providing a voice for patients and supporting best practice.  We also assist the Practice in times of high load, i.e. Flu Clinics.


How can you help?

We are looking for people from all ages, ethnicities and sexes who have a couple of hours per month to spare to join us in finding new and exciting ways to support the practice in providing a positive experience for the patients.

We meet monthly and wish to encourage a more diverse range of people by offering alternative meeting times and online access to our meetings.


Interested and would like to know more?

Please contact the group on

The group would like to contact patients on occasion by email and/or text so that they can obtain the views of the widest group of patients possible. We would like to obtain your email address and mobile phone number to do this. Please complete the Patient Contact Form to provide your consent for this.
