Hi I’m John, I have been a patient at Dr Maassarani & Partners for 3 years and prior to the practice merger, a patient at Family Health Centre for over 40 years!
I am the Patient Participation Group (PPG) Chair and am passionate to work with our patient representatives and the practice in providing support, input and strategic advice from a patient perspective. I encourage all patients to share their views and experiences (positive or negative) about the practice with the PPG as it is patient feedback that will help the PPG shape current and future services.
I am pleased to say that we currently have a core group of approximately 10 patients who are members of the group and are regular attendees at PPG meetings. We also have practice staff attend the meetings to support the group.
The PPG believe that the current number is about right but would look at any requests for additional members, particularly from the younger population, ethnic groups and disable patients.
You can either share your views directly with me (by filling out the form bellow) or leave your comments with a member of the reception team.
The PPG is an active group and all of our members are passionate to work towards the practice becoming ‘outstanding’.
