Patient Reference Group
In 2011 the recruitment started for the patient reference group. We advertised this in the waiting room and on the website. We had some response but not from a wide variety of patients. After a few months we decided to add a note to the other side of the prescription. We had a better response but again not all patient groups were being represented.
We waited for another two months promoting the patient reference group on the website, also by placing notices within the practice and by keeping the note on the prescriptions, but unfortunately there was no more response.
The members consisted of 6 people and after discussion with the GP partners it was decided to carry on and arrange a meeting but continue to advertise so that people of all ages could be involved. The group at this stage consisted of five men and one woman aged from 60 – 85. Due to travel constraints one member had to drop out leaving us with four men and one woman. We have since had more interest and another lady has signed up to the group to start when we meet again.
The first meeting was held on 28th September 2011.
