Our Practice has set up a patient engagement process which enables patients to become involved in decisions about the range and quality of services provided by our practice. Patient involvement in decisions can lead to changes to services we provide or commission, either directly or in our capacity as gatekeeper to community and hospital services.
Patient Representative Group
The practice has established a Patient Representative Group (PRG), which is representative of our practice patient population. Our PRG consists of 15 members whose individual profiles cover the following major groups of our patients:
• Patients aged over 65
• Patients aged over 75
• Disabled Patients
• Greek & Turkish patients (largest ethnic group amongst our patients)
• Students (age group 15 – 18)
• Working population ( 19 – 64)
• Nursing / Disability Home Manager
Every effort has been made to encourage membership and active participation of the PRG.
