If you have ever wondered what Patient Voice is all about why not come along to one of our group meetings. The meetings are open to all patients of the Practice and are usually held at 6:30 p.m. on a weekday evening every quarter – in March, June, September and December. The venue alternates between the surgery waiting room in Milborne St Andrew and the Reading Room in Milton Abbas.

If you sign up to the email list you will receive the agenda for forthcoming meetings giving you an opportunity to see if something interests you personally and receive minutes of meetings which regularly include a Practice Report. If you prefer to speak to me about Patient Voice or you are not on email but would like to receive communications via the post please ring me on 07983 013781 or pass your details to a member of the surgery reception team.

In addition, you can optionally sign up for external communications that we receive from organisations such as Healthwatch Dorset whose aim is “to give citizens and communities a stronger voice to influence and challenge how health and social care services are provided within their locality”; NAPP (National Association for Patient Participation) who keep us informed on what other participation groups are doing; or the CCG led Health Involvement Network – an engagement and communication group who issue a quarterly newsletter called “Feedback”.
