Our Patient Participation Group (PPG) is for patients of Bow, North Tawton and surrounding villages and hamlets.
The purpose of a Patient Participation Group is:
To give practice staff and patients the opportunity to discuss topics of mutual interest in their Practice.
To provide a means for patients to make positive suggestions about the practice and specific medical conditions as an 'expert' or experienced patient
To encourage health education activities within the Practice
To develop self-help projects to meet the needs of fellow patients, such as befriending, help with transport and bereavement support
To act as a representative group that can be called upon to influence the local provision of health and social care.
If you are interested in joining the patient group, have a suggestion or request or would like further information, please leave your details at reception and we will ask a member of the group to contact you.
