Patient Participation Group Newsletter
Please see the most recent newsletter following the PPG meeting here at Towcester Medical Centre.
A Patient Participation Group (PPG) is a group of people who are patients of the surgery and want to help it work as well as it can for patients, doctors and staff.
Your experiences matter and you can bring different ideas to the surgery to help us treat patients better or to improve what we do in some way.
We are still recruiting new members if this interests you. Please simply ask for Karen Wheeler at the Reception Desk.
