It has been a busy year for the practice but we are proud to have achieved the patient participation action plan objectives from last year.  Of note, the implementation of the new electronic patient record system (EMIS WEB) is going to be helpful for the future to inform patients about their appointments and various results electronically.

The surgery would like to say a big thank you to all patients who are members of the group.meeting

Patient Participation Group Members Meeting

The patient participation group (PPG) at Primary Healthcare Centre Chopwell has been established for 6 years.  PPG meetings are held twice a year.  

We discussed the contents of the patient satisfaction questionnaire in the first meeting on 01/10/2013.  As a result, the PPG suggested some changes to the questions asked.

A post survey meeting was held on 14/03/2014, where there were 8 members attended and 4 apologies.  The survey results were discussed and action points agreed upon.

 The Patient Survey

The survey was randomly given to patients as they attended the surgery.  There was also a link on the surgery website homepage that patients could access to complete the questionnaire.

We would like to thank all patients who completed the survey.  The results will help us to improve our services.

 Results action plan 2013-14

After discussion with the PPG, the following action plan was agreed upon:

1. Make patients more aware that that they can book appointments, order prescriptions and change their address and contact details online. This has been available for two years.

2. Make patients aware by posters and leaflets that they can make appointments online as well as in person and by phone.

3. Publish the data of did not attend (DNA) appointments by poster and on the website news page.

4. Make patients aware of our new system of text messaging to remind patients of their appointment by adding information onto prescriptions, producing a new slide for our Envisage system and by putting posters up around the building.

5. Make patients aware of what services are available to them by posters and website.
