Patient Participation Group
If you have an interest in your community and the development of the local healthcare services, why not join our group? We usually meet 6 weekly and hold between 3-4 open meetings per year, on topics that the community puts forward. So far, we have covered mental health, patient summary records and the changes to the Health Service. With the rapidly changing health agenda taking place, it is important that patients are part of the programme.
It is your patient group, so why not support it, attend the Open Evenings, and tell us what needs changing or improving through the suggestion box.
We now sponsor a "fun" exercise group, run weekly in Salem schoolrooms on Thursday mornings at 9am. Cost only £3.
Patient Reference Group
We are always looking for new ways to find out how we can improve our service and how patients perceive our surgery and staff.
To help us with this, we have set up a virtual Patient Reference Group so that you can have your say.
Periodically, we ask the members of this Reference Group some questions, such as what you think about our opening times or the quality of the care or service you received. We will contact you via email or post and keep our surveys brief so that it shouldn’t take too much of your time.
We want to gather around sixty patients from as broad a cross-section as possible to get a truly representative sample. We need young people, workers, retirees, people with long term conditions and people from non-British ethnic groups.

There is a voluntary support group for young people with type 1 Diabetes which meets every six weeks at St Mary's Parish Centre. The support group, which is for young people and their families to meet new people and share their experiences over refreshments, also arranges activities, outings and events.
Meetings are on Mondays, on the 2nd March, 20th April, 8th June and 13th July.
We completed our first survey in February covering various topics including access to the surgery, availability of information, appointments, waiting times and satisfaction levels. A link to the survey results, report and action plan are available through the links below.
The doctors and staff involved in coordinating the survey would like to thank the members of the Patient Participation Group and the Patient Reference Group for their hard work without which the survey would not have been possible.
