Patient Participation Group

Haltwhistle Medical Group Patient Reference Group

Haltwhistle Medical Group has established a Patient Participation Group, which it is hoped will help to better focus priorities inline with the needs of the local population.

The 12 members of the group are aged between 16 and 80. There is a good mix of men and women, including regular users of the surgery and some who rarely visit.  There are people with chronic diseases, people who care for older people and young children – in other words, a representative cross-section of patients.

It is intended that the forum will allow all patients, through their practice representatives, to raise issues about local medical services in order that services can be continuously improved.

It will also allow mechanisms to be developed to keep patients better informed about local services and to provide feedback to patients about issues, which have been raised.

If you would like to join the group or raise any concerns or issues with the Haltwhistle representatives please do so via the link on the image opposite.
