In addition to our Patient Participation Group (and to run in conjunction with) we have a Virtual Patient Participation Group. This exists of patients who do not attend group meetings (ie if the group is running at full member capacity/if the patient is unable to attend meetings) but would like to take part in associated questionnaires/surveys and to contribute to the Practice's decision making process around practice facilities and services.
The aim of the Virtual Patient Participation Group facility is to attract a wider range of patient views (representative of the Practice Population) which will help meet the needs of the whole patient population.
From time to time the Virtual Patient Participation Group will be asked to complete on line surveys etc. and once the results of surveys have been collated they will be used in the decision making process and the outcome will be published on the website/Practice Newsletter (see Practice News link).
