How will you be kept informed?

You can read about any issues that are brought to the attention of the PPG on the website or on the surgery boards.

How will your views be passed on?

The PPG holds regular meetings with staff at the surgery, where they can discuss points on your behalf. The minutes are circulated to all members of the group and a summary is displayed on the Surgery notice board. The full minutes are on the website.

What can you do?

You could consider joining the group. See details on joining the group here or in the surgery.

Some members give their views exclusively via email.

Others meet for about an hour and a half, every month or two.

Maybe you have a particular interest, such as the services for pregnant mums, children, people with certain illnesses, older people or people who work.

Perhaps you have skills that could help the group to represent the patients.

We would love to hear from you and tell you more about how you could help us to help the patients and staff at The Hill Surgery. If you would like to find out more about PPGs in general, please go to
