Newnham and Westbury Surgery are eager to ensure that local people are actively involved in deciding how the health services they use should develop.
To provide patients with the opportunity to express their views we have set up:
Newnham and Westbury Surgery Patient Participation Group.
In 2011, a group of patients were invited by the doctors of Newnham and Westbury Surgery to form a group. We do, however, still need more patients to participate especially those under 40 yrs of age.
Everyone likes to have a say on the things that affect them and most particularly when it comes to health.
The aim of the Patient Partcipation Group is to give patients, GP's and practice staff an opportunity to meet, to exchange ideas and information and then to take action.
Are you interested in getting involved and having a say?
Our group generally meets quarterly at the practice. The group will be only too pleased to receive any comments and suggestions with regards to the services provided at the surgery, which they will feedback to the practice in the quarterly meetings.
Chair: Currently Vacant
