The overall aim of our group [PPG] is to develop a positive and constructive relationship between patients, the practice and the community it serves, ensuring the practice remains accountable and responsive to all its patients needs.
Our group is affiliated to The National Association for Patient Participation.
Our PPG have named themselves FOSH Firends of Somerton House, they have thirteen members, mainly made up of patients, they will help the Surgery with completion of questionnaires, fund raising, petitions (when necessary) and generally be a point of contact for patients and always welcome new members.
