Welcome to the Warrengate Medical Centre's Patient Participation Group webpages.
All the information is available by clicking on the relevant folder tab.
We have a well-established Patient Participation Group (PPG) and are hoping to recruit new members to ensure the whole patient community is represented. The PPG should act as the voice of the patients, relecting local views and having a say in major changes and decisions taken within the Practice. At the Practice we use the PPG as a sounding board for new ideas we may wish to try.
If you would like to join our group, please contact Diane Sanderson, Practice Manager, for more information.
If you do not have the time to attend these meetings, or are busy during the day then please consider joining our Virtual Patient Participation Group (VPPG) - more details are available on the next tab.
The doctors, nurses and other staff at Warrengate Medical Centre would like to hear your views on the services we provide and your suggestions of how we can improve things for all patients.
To help us with this, we are setting up a virtual patient representation group so that you can have your say. We will contact you 4 or 5 times a year to alert you to new surveys or to ask your opinion on any changes we are thinking of making. You will also be able to contact us by email with any suggestions of how we could improve our services.
Please note that no medical queries will be responded to and we will not be able to correspond with you about anything personal.
We aim to gather around a hundred patients from as broad a spectrum as possible to get a truly representative sample. We need young people, workers, retirees, people with long term conditions and people from non-British ethnic groups.
