Due to our diminishing group we have not had a meeting in 12 months. We are actively encouraging patients to join our group to help shape our services and improve access. We have created an online survey to establish what patients think our group should look like. Please take two minutes to complete this survey so we may create a group that is functional and useful to improve our services.

Patients can now contribute to our Patient Participation Group via an online portal. If you have any feedback, comments or general issues you would like us to discuss please go to the web-site and share this.
VIRTUAL PATIENT PARTICIPATION GROUPS (PPG)
`Virtual` PPGs, allow engagement with the wider practice population using email or forums and social media.
It is hoped that via this Virtual Group we will be able discuss issues coming up in our Practice and eventually I'd then hope to take things further and allow us to engage with the surgery on a face to face basis in. Most patients have been reluctant to commit to this, so hopefully using this forum will allow us to take into account your views and also those of a representative sample of all patients.
PATIENT PARTICIPATION GROUPS (PPGs)
PPGs are defined as ‘critical friends’ within the practice environment, to ensure that services are responsive to patients’ needs, and that they improve over time. Every PPG is unique, evolving to meet local needs. They carry out research, hold health awareness and information, events, support the practice in its dealings with other bodies, and carry out patient surveys.
Most commonly they find out what patients think, and meet regularly with the practice manager, GPs and other staff, to identify improvements and sometimes contribute towards carrying out change. Groups also provide support to individual patients, helping them to make informed decisions about managing their health conditions, and show people where to find additional services and support in the community.

We would like to know how we can improve our service to you and how you perceive our surgery and staff.
To help us with this, we set-up our first Patient Participation Group meeting, which was held on the 9th October. Feedback recieved was most constructive and as part of our ongoing commitment to improve the patient experience at the Junction Surgery, we shall be arranging patient questionnaires to be filled out by our patients in the next few weeks. We shall keep our surveys succint so it shouldn't take too much of your time.
The practice welcomes and encourages participation from all groups regardless of gender, age and ethnic background.
The minutes from our recent patient participation group meeting will shortly be added below.
