All patients registered with the Abbey Medical Centre are welcome to join our patient participation group (PPG). We are always seeking new ways to improve the service we provide to our patients and are keen to hear your views. Over the last few years patient feedback has been key in helping us decide on changes that we have made and in shaping the future of the practice.
The Patient Group meets every three months throughout the year at the practice, mostly on a Wednesday afternoon.
We would like to extend an invitation to any patients who would like to come along to our meetings. However we are particularly underrepresented in the following areas:-
- Working patients
- Patients with young children
- Young people (teenagers)
- Ethnic minorities
If you would like to be involved please contact Charlotte Sango, Acting Practice Manager.
