Dear Patients,

We continue to invite all patients to join our Patient Participation Group (PPG) to help shape the care that we deliver at Streatham Place Surgery. All registered patients are welcome to attend any of our PPG meetings even if you do not wish to be a regular group member, and membership to the group is open to all of our patients.

Since September 2015, we have held three PPG meetings, and our regular attendees now wish to invite all patients to join in formalising the group by way of electing a PPG Chairperson and a Vice Chairperson.

The responsibility of these roles are detailed below, and you are invited to either:

  • Nominate a patient that you would like to take on one of these roles
  • Stand for election and/or
  • Vote in the elections taking place Tuesday 10th May 2016

If you would like to stand, nominate or to vote for either of the Patient Participation Roles, please contact Bushrra Ali at Streatham Place Surgery by Tuesday 26th April 2016 – we will be unable to consider any requests after this date.
