A special thank you to Niki our PPG lead in organising ‘well being on the frontline’with interviews from our wonderful team. Below is an extract the full article can be seen at
”We talked to healthcare professionals who dedicate their lives to caring for others. And who are now committed to caring for their communities during a global crisis, risking their own health and wellbeing.
The pandemic has placed huge pressures on the NHS, however, as we have seen, NHS staff are highly skilled, motivated and resilient. They have great wisdom, experience and profound values of compassion. So, we wanted to find out how they have found a balance between the extreme challenges they face and compassion for themselves – from the inside out. Maybe we can all find some wisdom in what they have to say about coping and meeting their wellbeing needs.

The role of the PPG
We would like to know how we can improve our service to you and how you perceive our surgery and staff.
To help us with this, we have set up a virtual patient representation group so that you can have your say. We will ask the members of this representative group some questions from time to time, such as what you think about our opening times or the quality of the care or service you received. We will contact you via email and keep our surveys succinct so it shouldn’t take too much of your time.
We aim to email patients from as broad a spectrum as possible to get a truly representative sample. We need young people, workers, retirees, people with long term conditions and people from non-British ethnic groups.
If you are happy for us to contact you occasionally by email please fill out the form below.
We will be in touch shortly after we receive your form. Please note that no medical information or questions will be responded to.
Many thanks for your assistance.
