Information for Patients
What is a Patient Group? The aim of a group is to get patients involved with the practice in a positive way and to help the practice provide services that patients want. Involving patients helps the practice understand patients needs from a patient perspective and therefore helps the practice with decision making.
When did it start? Our first Meeting was on 30th June 2011
Who is involved from the practice? The whole primary healthcare team is involved in different ways, usually this will be with Angela Worobel, Practice Manager, and various other members of the team, e.g. GP’s, Practice Nurses, Receptionists etc.
Who else is involved? The practice works in partnership with NHS Bradford & Airedale and different representatives may be invited to make presentations to patients or make requests to use this forum for consultation purposes when re-designing services. NHS Bradford & Airedale is responsible for local health services.
What is discussed at the meetings? The agenda is driven by particular topics that the practice wish to bring to the attention of patients. Patients also contribute to the by raising anything they wish. Usually items that can be discussed are: appointments, telephone access, new services coming on line, alterations to premises and services, practice leaflet. Meetings are usually monthly
Do I have to attend each meeting? No you do not have to attend each meeting. Once we know that you would like to become involved you can decide for yourself exactly how much you would like to become involved. If you would just like to receive the minutes of the meetings then you can pass on your contact details.
Other ways to get involved? If you don’t have time to attend meetings then you can get involved by agreeing to become a “virtual member” by agreeing for us to contact you from time to time by e-mail
If you are interested please contact our Practice Manager, Angela Worobel on her direct line which is 01274 468972 or alternatively e-mail her on firstname.lastname@example.org
