Patients of The New Surgery – An Invitation to Join Our Patient Participation Group

Rothschild House Surgery (RHS) has a long established independent Patient Participation Group (PPG) which has provided a valuable means of communication between patients, surgery GPs, staff and the wider NHS services we all use. We represent the interests of patients and try to ensure that their voice is heard. We understand that there is no existing formal Patient Participation Group to represent New Surgery patients and we would like to offer you the opportunity of participating in our group now that Rothschild House Surgery has taken over the management of the New Surgery.
Our Patient Participation Group is run by volunteers who give up our time to attend meetings at the surgery every 6-8 weeks, where we discuss a wide range of patient issues. These issues are not just those affecting the surgery directly, but also those resulting from being on the borders of Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire where patients receive NHS services from multiple organisations. Our face-to-face meetings are held at the surgery on a Wednesday morning, but for those unable to attend day time meetings, we also have a wider “Virtual” Patient Participation Group which communicates via email.
Further details about our recent activities may be found in our October newsletter on the Patient Participation Group page of the Rothschild House Surgery web site www.rothschildhousesurgery.co.uk. Please feel free also to contact me directly by email to find out more and to see how you could contribute: rhsppg@gmail.com
