Some years ago, the National Association of Patient Partnerships was founded to encourage and support groups of patients who wished to work more closely with their General Practitioners to enhance the services provided by local surgeries.
In 2007, Ashwell Surgery launched its own patient partnership group, now known as the Ashwell Patient Group, with committee members representing the various communities covered by the practice – Ashwell, Bassingbourn, Steeple and Guilden Morden, and Litlington. Dr Matt Jarvis and our Practice Manager Mark Pilling, also sit on the committee representing the professionals.
The Patient Group has set itself three focus areas:
- Health Promotion
- Improving patient transport arrangements
- Better communications, for example, by utilising existing village newsletters, and providing user feedback.
If you have any suggestions, especially about future Health Promotion events, please contact Peter Chapman, the Ashwell PGG Chairman on 01462 742977.
