Patient Group

Patient Participation Group

Who are we?

We are a small, friendly group of patients working together with the practice staff to improve the services of Alrewas Surgery for everyone.

We warmly welcome more people to join us and share their ideas, skills and enthusiasm!  We meet four times a year to discuss issues that concern our practice patients.

What do we do?

We work in a partnership with the surgery to:

  • contribute to the continuous improvement of services and quality of care
  • foster improved communication between the surgery and its patients
  • provide support for the surgery and help to implement change
  • help patients to take more responsibility for their health

Examples of our activities: Helping residents throughout the Covid-19 pandemic by mobilising volunteers and supporting the vaccine rollout; organising under 18s health information sessions at a local secondary school; helping at flu clinics; conducting our own patient surveys; introducing defibrillators into Alrewas, providing training on how to use them and workshops on essential first aid skills; producing quarterly surgery/PPG newsletters.

What we DON’T do

Please note that the group is used to represent the patient voice and is not for individual issues or complaints. These should be addressed by contacting the surgery on 01283 790 316.

Virtual PPG

Our Virtual PPG is a patients’ email group and is for those who wish to contribute to improving practice services but cannot attend face to face meetings.
