About the PPG

Our PPG is made up of a group of volunteer patients from the practice. They meet on a regular basis to discuss the services on offer, and how improvements can be made for the benefit of patients and the practice.

How to register

We are looking for Patients to join our Virtual Patient Group – an email based group we use as our first point of contact if we wish to make any changes in the practice.

If you are interested please email the surgery.

Did you know you can now consult with our GP Practice online? You can input
your symptoms online and will receive a response – usually that day, if a request is received within the Online Consultation daily request times. You will either be given advice, directed to other sources of support such as the pharmacy, receive a telephone consultation or if necessary booked in for an appointment. You will also have access to reliable and trustworthy self-help generic information 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You can also use the service to contact us about test results, sick notes, referral letters and
