It has been widely reported in the Press that GP Practices nationally are increasingly struggling to meet the demands and challenges facing them. At the PPG meeting a presentation was given explaining what services the Stennack Surgery currently offers (click on the link below).
The surgery thanked the PPG for their on-going support in working with them to improve and develop your local GP services.

What is a PPG ?
PPGs act as representatives of the patient population, and are a way of better connecting general practice with the community it serves. They meet on a regular basis to have open and constructive discussions about the services available – always with a view to taking action to make real improvements for patients and for the practice.
Benefits for patients
PPGs are a grassroots way of affecting change, and involving patients in improving the health and well-being of the local community. They have an increasingly important role to play in helping to give patients a say in the way services are delivered to best meet their needs, and the needs of the local community.
PPGs help to improve communication between patients and their practice. By producing regular newsletters, improving practice websites and chatting to patients face to face, they are able to better understand, and help the practice in responding to, the real needs of the community.
