  • To assist in the improvement of communications between Practice and patients;
  • To assist in promoting health awareness;
  • To provide feedback to the practice regarding services to patients
  • To provide practical support for the work of the healthcare team, for example at the annual ‘flu clinics;
  • To campaign for improvements to health facilities, in partnership with the Practice;
  • To ensure that patients are kept up-to-date with NHS changes and issues in the County and are given the opportunity to have their say.
  • To conduct the patient survey (last conducted in September 2023)

The group currently consists of 15 patient volunteers. New volunteers are always needed, to replace those who leave as well as to bring fresh ideas and impetus to the group.
