Patient Participation Group

We would like to know how we can improve our service to you and how you perceive our surgery and staff. 

To help us with this, we are setting up a virtual patient representation group so that you can have your say. We will ask the members of this representative group some questions from time to time, such as what you think about our opening times or the quality of the care or service you received. We will contact you via email and keep our surveys succinct so it shouldn’t take too much of your time.

We aim to gather around a hundred patients from as broad a spectrum as possible to get a truly representative sample. We need young people, workers, retirees, people with long term conditions and people from non-British ethnic groups.

If you are interested in learning more about Eaton Socon Health Centre and would like to influence how your services are developed both in the surgery and locally we are keen to hear your views and ideas. We have an active Patient Participation Group (PPG) who can be contacted using the message link on this website

The activities of PPGs vary because they develop to meet local need. They include:

  • Providing feedback from patients
  • Carrying out surveys in a variety of areas for example: health needs, awareness and expectations, patient satisfaction
  • Helping to design new or different services
  • Acting as representative group in wider forums across the health community
  • Offering support to other patients
  • Improving practice facilities

In addition to the PPG we also have a well developed Patient Reference Group (PRG) This is a virtual group contacted by email or post and consulted about developments or changes in the practice and also to take part in any surveys.
