Parsons Heath Medical Practice
Virtual Patient Participation Group (vPPG)
Would YOU like to influence the development of local health services?
Parsons Heath Medical Practice is eager to ensure that local people are actively involved in deciding how the health services they use should develop and to provide patients with the opportunity to express their views. To help us with this, we are re-launching our virtual patient participation group so that you can have your say. We will contact you via email approximately 2 or 3 times a year and keep our surveys and contacts succinct so it shouldn’t take too much of your time
Patient participation refers to patients who wish to take a more active interest in developing local healthcare services.The idea is for patients and staff to work together to share ideas to help patients to take more responsibility for their own health and help improve the services offered at the Practice. It gives patients a say in how services are planned, developed and evaluated, by developing a good working relationship with the practice staff and GPs.
