Patient Participation Group 

2021 Meeting Dates

Held on a Monday at Longton Health Centre @ 1pm

20th September 2021

· 6th December 2021

The group has being set up to gauge patient opinion on the services we offer and look at how we can direct services in the future towards our patient's needs. 

This is not a group to look at patient's personal complaints but rather engaging our whole community in matters that are important to you and how we can adapt our services to meet those needs both now and in the future.

Any patient within the practice is welcome to apply. 

We would like to encourage a wide range of patients from all age groups and ethnic backgrounds in order to make our group a success.


We realise that some patients will find it difficult to attend the surgery for meetings whether day or night and therefore we have set up a "Virtual Group" where we are able to contact you by email instead for your thoughts, opinions, feedback and updates. 

Please use the contact box to send your email details to add you to the group


If you are interested in joining the group please use the contact box above, or alternatively you can fill out one of the application forms at reception.

Longton Health Centre Patient Participation Group open letter from the Group members to patients

How to have your voice Heard

Longton Health Centre have a very active Patient Participation Group who wish to support all patients effectively.

If you have any general concerns, issues or compliments you wish to be discussed at the group please contact a patient representative below

Please remember this is a voluntary role and members have no authority to resolve concerns. Members will add the concern to the next agenda so that it can be heard and discussed. Please remember we also need to know what is done well at the Practice in order to be able to continue services in the same way. The response will be distributes through the PPG minutes/newsletters that are available at reception or via the web site at www.longtonhealthcentre.co.uk

Individual concerns or issues must be raised direct with the practice through the normal route https://longtonhealthcentre.co.uk/page.php?id=35
