Patient Participation Group
Regent Medical Centre (previously Elmfield Health Group) has had a Patient Participation Group since 2008, initially meeting approximately twice a year but this has increased over time and recently we have agreed to meet quarterly. The meetings are attended by one of the GPs, the Practice Managers as well as the group members.
Registered patients were encouraged to join by posters/fliers in the waiting room, information on the website and in the practice information booklets. The existing members also published their own e-mail addresses in the waiting room so patients could contact them directly. Further members were recruited via e-mail and by GPs inviting them to join when they came to the surgery.
We currently have 9 members, some of whom prefer to be a “virtual member” keeping informed and expressing opinions and ideas via e-mail rather than attending meetings.
We are continually trying to recruit new members to add to our group, especially those with a disability and from a younger age group to add to the diversity of the group.
