Patient Participation Group

The Aims of the Patient Participation Group

We have an active Patient Participation Group representing the patients of Bloxham & Hook Norton Surgeries.

A Patient Participation Group should be representative of the patients at Bloxham & Hook Norton Surgeries, male, female, single young adults, people with young families, patients with long term conditions, middle aged and older patients.

This group will have a number of aims, some of which will be:

  • Liaison between the professional staff and patient representatives
  • Patient representatives liaising informally with other patients to find out their views, their concerns, their interests in developing other patient support groups
  • Meeting with representatives from other Health Centres and Patient Participation Groups
  • Developing community links and supports

The form and shape of the group will depend on the members and this will evolve as the group becomes established.

Getting Your View

The group would like to contact patients on occasion by email and/or text so that they can obtain the views of the widest group of patients possible. We would like to obtain your email address and mobile phone number to do this. Please complete the Patient Contact Form to provide your consent for this.

NAPP

There is also a national group for patient participation, National Association of Patient Participation (NAPP),
