Patient Participation Group

The Aims of the Patient Participation Group

We have three active Patient Participation Groups whose members work with us to improve our services to patients.

There are two ways in which patients can get involved:

  1. Join our Patient Groups - we meet quarterly (on an evening or lunchtime at the practice) to discuss developing the practice and ensuring that we continue to provide a quality service to our patients.
  2. Join our Virtual PPG on Facebook - we would like to encourage even more patients to get involved with their surgery by offering their comments via a Facebook group. We will ask members of the group some questions about our services from time to time using social media. This is a chance to give honest and helpful feedback on the services we provide and development for the future of our surgeries. Every opinion matters.

To join Hatherleigh’s Group:

If you wish to join any of the groups please contact us at stating which PPG (either Holsworthy, Stratton or Hatherleigh) you are interested in. Alternatively, follow the links above for the PPGs on Facebook. You will need to be a patient at the surgery to be involved.
