Patient Participation Group

Giffard Drive Patient Group

We have a very active Patient Group who support the Practice in various projects in-house and help to raise funds for equipment for the benefit of the patients.

Established over 20 years ago,  they have supported the Practice purchasing nebulisers; a waiting room Blood Pressure monitor;  waiting Room Display Screenscreen for the Surgery Waiting Room, an ECG machine and a Dermascope, as well as the designer chairs in the Waiting Room, to name but a few. 

The latest donation is a Bluetooth Spirometer for COPD patients. 

Please sign up for our "Virtual Patient Group" if you would like to help us decide what services would best suit our patients -   The form can be found on the page "sign u p form".  Many thanks for helping us.

We are always happy to welcome new members, so if you are interested in supporting your Practice in any way, please feel free to come to one of the meetings.  The date of the next meeting can be found on the Waiting Room information screen.

Meetings are usually in the evenings at 7.00 pm at the Surgery every two months, and we try and alternate the weekdays to give everyone a chance to attend.  The meeting duration is normally around 90 minutes, depending on agenda content.

Details of the next meeting can be obtained from H Bellamy 01252 516380, who is the Chairman of the Patient Group or you can leave your number at Reception and we’ll contact you.  

The meeting dates for 2020 are to be confirmed:

September 2020  tbc

November 2020  tbc

December 2020 (Christmas Raffle Draw Date tbc)

We've set up a virtual patient representation group so that you can have your say. We will email you a succinct survey twice a year, so it shouldn’t take too much of your time.

We'd like 100 people from all age groups backgrounds and ethnicities to join us  to get a truly representative sample. patients with long term conditions are particularly welcome
