Patient Participation Group

The Aims of the Patient Participation Group

 

The Lyme Bay Medical Practice is committed to ensuring that patients are involved in decisions about the range and quality of services provided by our practice. We routinely ask for and act on the views of our registered patients. This includes involving our patients in decisions that lead to changes to the services we provide, either directly or in our capacity as gatekeeper to other services.

We engage patients through the use of Patient Participation Groups (PPG) and seek views from wider groups of practice patients through regular local practice surveys. The outcomes of the engagement and the views of our patients are routinely published on this website.

If you are interested in becoming a member of our Patient Participation Group and helping to shape the nature of health services provided in your local community please complete the online form via the link below.

Getting Your View

 The group would like to contact patients on occasion by email and/or text so that they can obtain the views of the widest group of patients possible. We would like to obtain your email address and mobile phone number to do this. 

Health Champions

What are Health Champions?

Health Champions are a volunteer, non-medical service provided by local people for local people, with the aim of working together to make healthier people and communities. Social support and connection is much needed within communities. It can help people to cope with long-term health conditions, to combat loneliness or deal with bereavement, or simply feel more confident and happier. Helping each other to live fuller lives.

Practice Champions welcome the opportunity to help, in the ways we can, to bring people together and connect through shared interests and hobbies. Whether it be a sport, arts & crafts, social get togethers or home visits for a chat ... even bingo, poetry or gardening.
