PATIENT PARTICIPATION GROUP AT CORWEN

A proposal to set up a Patient Participation Group resulted in an initial meeting at the Healthy Living Centre, Corwen at the beginning of April. Groups formed in other areas of the UK have become involved in fund-raising for local health requirements and community support for project developments - such as new surgery facilities. It is hoped that representatives from all areas of the community will become involved, and once established would be self sufficient and independent of the local surgery.

The main aims would be liaison between the community and the surgery in the form of newsletters, education groups, art in surgery, patient surveys and group notice boards, with possibly a library for various self help groups. Greater understanding between the surgery and community could help to dispel some of the myths and provide constructive criticism, whilst the two way dialogue would result in information gathering by both sides to improve primary health services in the area.

Local community groups and organisations are to be approached to gauge interest and it is hoped a further meeting will be held later in the year.
