Welcome to Meadowcroft Surgery Patient Participation Group (PPG).
We are an active group of volunteer patients who meet (with doctors and staff on a quarterley basis and act as your representatives providing views and opinions and giving feedback about the surgery and the services provided from a patients' perspective,
The PPG currently consists of a Committee of about 19 members and we have recently established an active virtual participation group (vPPG) who correspond by email only - see below for more information about the virtual group and how to join. We are continually seeking new members to join our virtual group as there is no limit on the number who can join. This is being introduced on an initial trial for 3 months, so that we can assess the impact the additional workload on our Committee members who are all volunteers.
A copy of the full PPG Terms of Reference and minutes of our recent Committee Meetings are available on the website within the tab named 'Documents & Reports'.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Please note the PPG is here to represent patients and we deal only with issues and concerns of a general nature. Please do not contact us about any personal or medical matter or clinical complaint - in these circumstances, please contact the surgery directly in the usual way.
If you have an email address and would like to join our Virtual Patient Participation Group:Please complete our online vPPG Joining form
Please note that your email address will be kept confidential and not passed to other Virtual Group Members or any other organisations, in line with current General Data Protection Regulations.

The vPPG is an initiative of the Practice and we would like to invite you to join in, provided you have an email address which you are willing to let us have. If this is the case, and you would like to join see the 'Apply to Join' section below.
As a member of Wide Way Medical Centre's vPPG we would like to ask you about the areas that you think we need to concentrate on, and to complete and return occasional online questionnaires which will help us review our services and the way we do things.
The benefit to you and us of being in a 'virtual' Group, is that you and we can respond to the Group's emails as and when convenient, rather than holding meetings which not everyone can attend.
Your input and thoughts are very important to the Practice and GPs. We hope that the vPPG will allow you to have an influence and a voice to express your views on how the Practice is doing and how we can improve services. Of course we won’t be able to do everything but we hope that we can develop services together.
You can contact the Patient Participation Group with your feedback, suggestion, comment or question. Please do not use this form for complaints - these should always be directed to the Practice Manager.
You can send us your views, or ask any questions about the PPG, using the group's contact form.
