At the PPG meeting on the 18th June 2014, it was agreed that the meetings structure should change to facilitate better working links with the Sunbury Health Centre (SHC).
PPG Open Meetings It was agreed that going forward, there will be an Open Meeting three times a year, where all patients are welcome to attend. This will have a limited agenda to allow patients to raise general issues. The first of these meetings is scheduled for October (exact date to be agreed).
PPG Core Group Business Meeting It was agreed that the PPG Core Group will continue to meet every six weeks (except in August) with SHC staff to progress the many issues facing the Practice. This Core Group currently consists of 7 patients, the SHC Practice Manager, the SHC Office Manager and a SHC Doctor.
We are keen that this Core Group is representative of the community that SHC serves so we would like to increase the number of patient representatives to a maximum of 10. We are particularly keen to attract patients with young families or who are from an ethnic minority background.
If you feel you have skills and experience to offer that would help us work with SHC to improve services for all and are interested in joining the group, please fill in the application form (insert link) along with a short summary of your reasons for applying. Neil Huntingford PPG Chairman
