Patient Engagement Group

This group is made up of patients of the practice who have offered their services on a voluntary basis. The role of the group is to provide a link between the practice and its patients.

Those patients are involved in decisions about the range and quality of services we provide, some of which may lead to changes in these services.

Aims of the group

  • Advising the practice on the patient perspective and helping to ensure that the service offered by the practice is designed to improve patient experience.
  • Running health promotion events and promoting self-care so that patients can play a full part in understanding and looking after their own health.
  • Raising awareness of the activities of the practice and other support that is available to patients, as well as relaying information back to the practice.
  • Contributing to decisions related to issues such as new practice premises, and advising on design of services from a patient perspective so that resources are used efficiently and effectively.
  • Other support activities such as fund-raising to improve the practice services by the procurement of additional equipment, research related to patient needs and views, running volunteer services and organising support groups.
