Parklands Patient Participation Group
The Patient Group at Parklands Medical Practice Held it's first meeting in December 2009. The group is currently made up of 11 patients and the practice management team with occasional representation from doctors and other practice staff as necessary.
The group meets on Monday evenings at the practice every 3 months. Meetings alternate between Buttershaw Lane and Park Road Surgery. Meetings always follow an agenda. The minutes of meetings can be accessed on the practice website.
The aim of the group is to decide ways of making a positive contribution to the services and facilities offered by the practice to patients.
Patient Group Constitution
During the last year the group have significantly influenced the Practice Development Plan and have assisted at practice Flu Clinics. The group also hosted a coffee morning aimed at our Polish speaking patients. This was in collaboration with a local charity called Sharing Voices Bradford and allowed non English speakers the opportunity to share patient experiences and understand how to access basic services at the practice.
Date of next meeting: 02/04/2012 6pm-7pm Park Road Surgery.
