Patient Participation Group

The Aims of the Patient Participation Group

We are pleased to announce that we have now formed a Patient Participation Group involving and incorporating patients registered at our surgery.

Very briefly and at its simplest, Patient Participation refers to Patients taking an active interest in their Health Care and at present these groups function particularly in GP surgeries and Health Centres. The agenda and direction of the group will depend on the local needs, the interests and energies of the participants.

Read our publicity letter

Topics raised can be very specific, very general or somewhere in between and any activities emanating from these topics will require time for them to be dealt with. Management, research, organising, planning and executing topics raised can be undertaken by the Patient Group, but there will always need to be regular communication with the Practice.

Appointed members of our Patient Participation Group are as follows:

  • David Blowen
  • Sheila Hopkinson
  • Geoff McNeice

If you have any issues you wish to be raised you can write to any of the members listed above at North Wingfield Medical Centre, Chesterfield Road, North Wingfield, Chesterfield, Derbyshire S42 5ND.

Virtual Group

Additionally, if you would be interested in being part of a Virtual Group and communicate entirely by email or you would be interested in attending a Patient Participation Group meeting would you please write to our Practice Manager Mr Alan Stray at North Wingfield Medical Centre, Chesterfield Road, North Wingfield, Chesterfield, Derbyshire S42 5ND or ask at Reception the next time you are in surgery.

Can we please emphasise that anyone who is interested MUST be a registered Patient with the Practice. If in the meantime you require more information please do not hesitate to contact our Practice Manager.

Getting Your View

The group would like to contact patients on occasion by email and/or text so that they can obtain the views of the widest group of patients possible. We would like to obtain your email address and mobile phone number to do this. Please complete the Patient Contact Form to provide your consent for this.
