Sutherland Lodge Surgery Patient Participation Group (PPG)
The surgery is looking for registered patients at the practice who would like to help in the development of the PPG. All local surgeries have PPGs, where patients can work with the surgery staff to improve the patients' experience, and the Sutherland Lodge PPG is undergoing a period of change, having been relaunched. They are looking for people with particular skills and especially welcome people with skills such as taking minutes, helping with the new virtual email group or generally bringing knowledge and experience to the bi-monthly meetings, held at the surgery from 6.30 to 8pm.
The other way patients can help is by becoming members of the Virtual Group, who would receive occasional emails asking their opinion over some aspect of patient care or giving news about health matters and the surgery in general. They would like as diverse a group as possible.
