Patient Participation Group
Patient Participation Group (PPG)
The Patient Participation Group was first formed in 2012/2013 and is made up of 9 patient representatives who meet approximately every 8 weeks with the Practice Manager and an Administrator to discuss any issues affecting patient care and assist in providing a good service to our patients. The Patient Participation Group represents the views of the patient body and provides feedback on their needs and concerns.
The Group’s Mission
The Group’s Mission is to support the continuous improvement of services delivered by Ayton and Snainton Medical Practice by finding ways of making a positive contribution to the delivery and development of local health care services.
Health Information Days
In July 2015 the group joined forces with Derwent Valley Bridge Community Library and Resource Centre to run Health information Days. Since 2015 the group has organised four health information days, two of which were held during the summer months and were called “Keep Well – Stay Well” and the other two during winter months called “Keep Well for Winter” and “Self-Care Health Care”.
The aim of the health days was to:
- Let the people attending get a quick health check from the practice nurse team.
- Have a chance to chat with a range of organisations that could help them manage their health.
- Learn new ways of keeping well through healthy eating and cookery demonstrations
- Attend talks about a range of organisations that can help people to keep well and manage their health conditions or the conditions of those close to them.
If you interested in joining the group please contact Pam Saltmer or Adele Robinson on 01723 863100.
