We have an active Patient Participation Group representing the patients of Bloxham & Hook Norton Surgeries.
A Patient Participation Group should be representative of the patients at Bloxham & Hook Norton Surgeries, male, female, single young adults, people with young families, patients with long term conditions, middle aged and older patients.
This group will have a number of aims, some of which will be:
- Liaison between the professional staff and patient representatives
- Patient representatives liaising informally with other patients to find out their views, their concerns, their interests in developing other patient support groups
- Meeting with representatives from other Health Centres and Patient Participation Groups
- Developing community links and supports
The form and shape of the group will depend on the members and this will evolve as the group becomes established.
Interested in joining us? You don’t need any specialist medical knowledge to join the PPG, and it won’t take up a huge amount of your time. If you wish to join or would like further information please email:
