We encourage patients to be actively involved with the Practice to help develop and improve health and social care for the people of Totnes. It is hoped that the Patient Participation Group (PPG) will act as a ‘critical friend’ to the surgery and strike a balance between support-ing the surgery in its efforts to improve facilities whilst, at the same time, being willing to voice concerns where problems are identified.
The Group could learn more about how the surgery is run as an independent business contracted to work for the NHS. Patients can take part in influencing how the service is delivered to improve the healthcare of all patients. In turn, patients will become more aware of the financial constraints which have to be taken into account when considering the provision of services.
It is hoped that the development of the PPG will facilitate patients working together with health professionals to improve services to everybody.
