Patient Participation

Patient Group

The Practice has run a Patient Group for over 10 years and we meet bimonthly on the third Tuesday of the month at 5:00 pm. Dr Kevin Simms and Ms Brogan Purves, Practice Manager, head up the group. We would like to invite you to become a member of this group either by attending the meeting or becoming a virtual member. Becoming a virtual member involves you in the group without you having to attend the meetings. We would like to hear your views on what works, what doesn’t and what improvements you would like to see at the Practice.

We are looking to involve as many patients in the group as possible, on a voluntary basis, particularly patients with young children so that we can shape and develop the services that we deliver to you, to make sure we offer you the services that you would expect and require. Your contribution would be valued and appreciated in helping us to help you, so we can give you the best quality health care. If you feel we do things well, we would like to know, so we can continue the good work!

What is involved?

Suggestions and Ideas

We would like to hear your views and ideas on what you would like to see from the surgery, so we can identify areas for improvement and influence the development of the local health services. We will gather this information by inviting you to participate in simple on-line surveys up to four times a year.

Your opinion

Occasionally we may contact you for your opinion on certain proposed changes.


Members of the group will be invited to attend the Patient Group to discuss the focus of any changes to be made and the outcomes.

Topical Educational Events

We may offer topical educational events, if the members would like us to. Attendance will be offered primarily to Patient Group Members.

Reporting Back

We will publish on our website a report of the Patient Group activity and subsequent achievements.

Finally – if you would like to become a member of the Patient Group, please complete the form and return it to us. Download the form here or fill in the online form here.
