Patient Participation Group

The Aims of the Patient Reference Group

The Patient Reference Group (PRG) are an advisory group of patients whose members work voluntarily to help Parkfield improve GP services for the patient population.

The aim of a PRG is to help foster effective communication between Parkfield and it's patient population. 

How do the PRG get involved?

The PRG provides a forum to work in a variety of areas such as:

  • Considering service suggestions which could benefit groups of patients or individuals
  • Assisting in evaluating and prioritising demands on clinical resources
  • Considering specific operation issues as raised from time to time
  • Providing patient perspective
  • Determining responses to patient satisfaction questionnaires and formulating suitable action plans to address patient concerns
  • Acting as a sounding board for future surgery plans
  • Improving communication between Parkfield and its patient population
  • Acting as patient support for specific events such as flu clinics

Interested in joining?

Parkfield would like gather as many patients as possible from as broad a spectrum as possible to get a true representative sample. We need younger people, workers, retirees and people with long-term health conditions.

Our PRG can also offer virtual membership whereby you can be contacted online to receive newsletters, surveys and updates where appropriate.
