Message from new chair of Minster Medical Practice Patient Group:
My name is Susan Daykin and I have only been with the practice for two years since my relocation from Shropshire where I was an active member of both my practice and the Shropshire PPG. I firmly believe that each of us has a responsibility to live as healthy a lifestyle as possible, something that is unique to each of us depending on family, work and current health.
My first task is to thank Russell Pond for all his work in nurturing the group since it was formed. Russell retired as chair last year and we wish him well.
With Russell's foundations in mind I am committed to encouraging patients to take an interest in our Patient Participation Group, either as a virtual online member or by coming along to our meetings where we hope to discuss current health issues and ways to improve patients experience in using and improving health services.
Your Patient Group needs you.
If you are interested in joining the PPG or would like any further information please contact Jo Downes, Practice Manager, 01522 515797
Our group is affiliated to The National Association for Patient Participation which issues periodic bulletins and newsletters. These can be accessed at www.napp.org.uk.
