Patients Representative Group (PRG)

Patient Representative Group (PRG) 

Latest Minutes: PRG Minutes 21 July 2021

Welcome to the PRG section of the Surgery website.

The PRG was formed in 2005 to provide a link between patients, doctors, nurses and staff and is designed to assist all patients. It consists of a number of volunteer patients who advise the practice on service provision and propose changes that would be useful from a patient’s perspective.

How to get involved:

The PRG is always keen to find new members. If you cannot attend a meeting, you can contribute your ideas by:

  3. Contribute to meetings virtually (see 2022 meetings below)

We Welcome Your Views

Whilst changes are continually being made in the Surgery to improve the standard of care, we welcome your views on the priorities the practice should consider and any improvements you might recommend.

Please let us know of any changes or services that you would like to see.
