Have your say - join our Patient Participation Group

The Patient Participation Group (PPG) meets three or four times a year, and it is designed for patients and surgery staff to discuss how services should be provided by the practice.  It is not a forum to air personal grievances, but it does help the surgery to understand what it does well and areas where it needs to improve.  If meetings are not for you, you can become part of our Virtual PPG where we email you three or four times a year with minutes of the PPG meetings and occasionally ask you to complete a survey about our services.

If you are willing to join the PPG or our Virtual PPG, or if you have any questions, please email us at drshakarchispractice@nhs.net  There is a dedicated PPG page on our website at http://www.victoriagp.com/ppg.aspx?t=1
