PATIENT PARTICIPATION GROUP
Bradford Road Medical
Centre has a Patient Participation Group which meets every three months with
a speaker on particular subjects of interest. These meetings are advertised in
the BRMC Newsletter and on the plasma screens in the waiting rooms. All patients
are welcome. Membership is £3.00 per year for one person or £5.00
for a family. Membership entitles you to a newsletter sent to your home and funds
our meetings. The newsletter, informing patients of current events around the
surgery, is produced three times a year.
The aims of our Group are as follows: -
establish and maintain communication between doctors and patients, and in particular
to give feedback to the practice about patients' principal concerns and expectations.
provide an informal mechanism for receiving patients' suggestions and constructive
criticism about the practice and its organisation.
offer a forum for the discussion of health education topics of interest to patients
with special reference to the promotion of health and the prevention of disease.
encourage the development of voluntary community care, especially for the housebound
and elderly, and the setting up of self-help groups for patients with particular
act as a community pressure group on health-related matters, and to bring local
needs to the attention of Primary Care Trust, Health and Local Authorities.
