November 2017

Well done to those members of staff who braved the cold and competed in the Movember 5k run - and some of their children, who ran the 1k kids race - at Heaton park on Sunday 19th of November, which raised money and attention for this fantastic mens health awareness charity. Not quite sure who the two monkeys and Xmas pudding were but they kept following us around!!!!

Patient Participation Group

Our Patient Participation Group (PPG) was set up in December 2011 to enable our patients to help facilitate the shaping and developing of services both in the practice and the community we serve.

The original presentation documents shown to patients can be downloaded by clicking here and help to explain exactly what our group does.

If you would like to email the group with any constructive suggestions, comments and/or feedback - be it positive or negative - then you can email them, in confidence (the practice does not have access to this email account) at:  You can also enquire about how to become a member of the group and as to what this will entail, if you are interested in becoming involved. 

Who Is Involved In The Group?

The group currently has 18 members who are all patients registered at the practice and who reside in the local area.

The group is chaired by Miss Caroline Mitchell, who is supported by Ms Anne Wallace, the group's secretary and whom is responsible for organising the meetings and distributing various documentation.  More information about Caroline and Anne is available by clicking our 'Members Profile' tab at the top of the page.

When & How Often Does The Group Meet?

The group has previously been meeting once per quarter at the practice, but we are currently looking to increase the frequency of these meetings as the group and its activities continue to grow and prosper. Our next meeting is scheduled for Thursday 20th October, 7.00 p.m. at the Surgery -  please message either the PPG email account ( or the surgery email account ( if you are interested in attending.
