Modbury Health Centre has a virtual Patient Participation Group(PPG).
We currently have 45 members
This Group plays a valuable part in the future development of the practice and is used as a resource to provide feedback on the range and quality of the services and also to generate ideas for areas to improve.
We are actively recruiting patients for the group.
Our aim is to work with as many different patients as possible and to make sure that the group is as fair a representation of our entire patient population as we can achieve. That is why we decided to establish a virtual Group rather than a physical one as we understand that many patients are unable to attend the meetings due to other commitments but may want to have a say in what we do. This means that contact will be by post or email. We do plan a patient education event to be held at the practice during Autumn 2017.
What will be involved? -The main role of the Group is to give us feedback on how well the practice is doing. We also gain feedback from the GP Patient Survey run by the Department of Health. We also run a Friends and Family Questionnaire that can be completed either in the surgery of via our website. These results are also available on this website on the menu on the right under Have your Say-Survey Results.
Patients will be asked a series of simple questions about how we are doing. We want to ensure the right areas are covered in the General Practice Annual Survey, so the group will be asked to tell us what areas we should be looking at. This survey is carried out in September each year.
The survey results will be published on the website along with our proposal to improve the areas it highlights as in need of change. You will have the chance to let us know if you agree with our plans. At the end of the year we will publish the results of our achievements in the areas that needed change.
