About the Group

Patient Participation Group

In November 2011, The Laurels and Sidney House Surgeries held its first Patient Participation Group meeting.

The aim of the Patient Participation group is to enable a representative group of the surgeries patients and relevant local agencies to meet with the staff of the surgery to raise patient concerns, suggest and discuss improvements to our services and facilities and to help facilitate a better understanding of the surgeries goals, procedures and limitations.

The PPG meets at The Laurels Surgery on a regular basis throughout the year, has elected officers and a formal constitution; which is set out below.

The minutes of the all meetings held thus far are available to download from the attached documents.

If you would like to consider joining the P.P.G please contact us either via the link below or write to us at Sidney House and The Laurels Surgeries, addressing it to the Patient Participation Group.
