Whats the PPG about?
March 2013 saw the merging of two practices, The Cambrian Surgery and Willow Street Medical Centre. Both Patient Participation Groups merged together to become The Cambrian Medical Centre Patient Participation Group (PPG).
The main purpose of the PPG is to provide a formal link between patients and the Centre.
Members of the PPG have experience of a wide range of medical conditions and situations. Their ages range from 20 to over 70 years. They bring forward ideas, views and thoughts of our patients. The Group also promotes good health and contributes to the continuing improvements of services in the Centre.
The Group meets approximately four times a year in the early evening. Recent actions include: assisting in the annual patient survey; helping to promote the flu vaccination campaign and commenting on proposals for patient preference for hospital referrals to England or Wales.
New members are always welcome, therefore, If you would like to make comments or become a member of the PPG please speak to a member of staff in reception at the Medical Centre.
There are more details about the group on the notice board in the main foyer next to reception.
