Patient Participation

Following our meeting between Southbourne Surgery and our PPG on 18th April 2016, as well as our Patient Communication Survey, we identified areas to consider and together formulated our 2016 Action Plan.  To view our Action Plan please click here (updated February 2017)

If you have any comments to make, we would be delighted to hear from you, please email   southbourne.surgery@nhs.net - Our Patient Liaison Coordinator (Claire McCann) runs the PPG and is always happy to hear from anyone who is interested in joining our PPG.

We always welcome new members to our PPG, which is currently run by email correspondence, to try to encompass the views of a good cross section of our patient population.

Our PPG are all volunteers and have been either approached by the surgery to ask for their help or have responded to notices & newsletters. We currently have representatives from the following groups:

  • Parents of young children
  • Parents of teenagers
  • Under and over 65s
  • Male and female
  • Carers
  • Nursing home managers
  • Patients with mobility problems
  • Patients with chronic, long term illnesses
  • British & Non – British patients

If you are interested in joining our group please contact Claire McCann at the surgery or email Southbourne.surgery@nhs.net .
