Amherst Medical Practice Patient Participation Group (PPG)
Patient Participation Groups exist to give GP practices a means of obtaining feedback on services from patients.
The Amherst PPG meets quarterly at the St Botolph’s Road surgery and its members are Amherst patients, the Practice Manager and one of the GPs.
Patients can make suggestions for discussion by using the Have Your Say noticeboard in the surgery, by leaving messages for the Chair via the Practice Manager.
The PPG helps the practice with the annual patient survey by suggesting question topics, helping compile the survey questionnaire and ensuring patients have the opportunity to complete it. By clicking on the documents below, you can get a more detailed view of PPG contributions
If you would like to be an active PPG member or a corresponding member, whose opinion the PPG can seek on specific issues please contact the Chair via the Practice Manager or by email.
