Patient Participation Group (PPG)

We are a new group of volunteers, set up to help represent the 10,000 registered patients of The Colne Practice. We are all ourselves patients of the practice.

We aim to:-

  •  Facilitate good relations between patients and The Colne Practice 
  •  Work collaboratively and positively with them to improve the services and facilities available to all patients 
  •  Strengthen two-way communications between the practice, other health care providers and, us the patients, for everyone’s benefit
  • Act as a representative group to support the practice
  • Meet monthly with staff from the surgery.

This year, 2024/5, our initial focus will be:-

  • A patient survey to determine what you think is going well and areas for improvement, as well as identifying the best way to communicate with everyone
  • To produce a quarterly newsletter
  • To organize a health fair at a local venue for all of our patients at which doctors, nurses and specialist speakers will be available to provide advice and encourage preventative healthcare.
