Open Patient Participation Group Meeting
WLMC would like to invite you to attend a ‘OPEN’ Patient Participation Group meeting (PPG) at Whittaker Lane Medical Centre (WLMC)
PPGs are made up of patients from the surgery that has an interest in healthcare, both personal and as representatives of others and both locally and nationally.
They work closely with their practice to ensure local needs are met and patient views taken into account.
At WLMC we are very keen to set up a PPG to ensure that we have the patient voice at the centre of any decisions we make. It is also a great opportunity for you to get involved and provide ongoing dialogue with the practice from a patient point of view.
The meeting will take place on:
Wednesday 21st November 2018 at 6.00-7.00pm
Where I and Dr J Schryer will be present, I do hope you will be able to attend.
For further information, please call me on: 0161 773 1580
