In 2007, Burnham Medical Centre set up its own Patient Participation Group or PPG, as it is more commonly known. The main purpose of the group is to feed back to the surgery on services and make suggestions for improvement. The group also has a key role in developing services at the practice.
Our participants have a serious interest in voicing representative views and present positive, forward thinking opinions and ideas. Any patient aged over 16 who is registered with Burnham Medical Centre is eligible to apply to join our PPG. There are nine patient members together with representation from the GPs and practice management in the group. We welcome interest from patients who are interested in joining; however, there may be a wait to do so. You may e-mail them at: PatientGroup@burnhammc.nhs.uk or write to them at the Medical Centre address.
If you would like to pass on your feedback to the PPG so that they may represent your point of view, please e-mail them at: PatientGroup@burnhammc.nhs.uk or write to them care of Burnham Medical Centre, Love Lane, Burnham-on-Sea TA8 1EU
