'Calling all patients'
We are looking to work together with our patients to understand your views and help us improve our service to you and find out how you perceive our surgery and staff.
We are looking for patients to join our Patient Participation Group. We would like to have a group that reflects all the patients therefore we are asking that you consider yourself to join our PPG your view does matter to us.
Please contact Charmaine Mullins who is the PPG coordinator and she will gladly explain how the group works.
