What do we do?   

We aim to help the Croft team to improve and support patient services by representing your queries and responding to national and local developments.

Each year we conduct a Patient Satisfaction Survey and then work with the Practice to make changes in line with the findings.

How do we set our agenda? 

The Practice suggests areas of discussion, but most issues are raised by you!  We need you to communicate with us,so that we are aware of particular concerns and opinions.  Email or paper comments welcome - and fill in our questionnaires.

How do we inform patients of our activities?   

The quarterly newsletter is our main form of communication. This can be picked up at the surgery or e-mailed to you directly(ask at the desk for details). We also have a dedicated PPG board at the practice with useful information to support the patients and our activities.
