Patient Participation Group

Robin Hood Lane Patient Participation Group

The Patient Participation Group advises the Practice on patients’ views regarding the development of the Practice, and allows the Practice to consider patients’ views when reviewing and expanding services.

Some of this is  done via email and some by periodic meetings at the Practice to enable participants to discuss feedback and new ideas.
