Patient Participation Group

We would like to know how we can improve our service to you and how you perceive the Practice and our staff.

To help us with this, we have set up a Patient Participation Group so that you can have your say. We will ask the members of this 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 have 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 gather around a hundred 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 wish to participate please contact the Practice or complete the online form by clicking on the button shown below

OR: if you prefer, you can download the sign-up form below, print it out, fill it in, and post it to the Practice, put it through the letterbox, or hand it to a Receptionist.

We aim to acknowledge your request within a few days.

We will advised here when the next PPG meeting will be held at Thurrock Health Centre.

Virtual PPG

We are looking to set up a Virtual PPG (Patient Participation Group) for registered patients at Thurrock Health Centre.

The Virtual PPG will be an extension of the Core PPG that meet at the surgery several times a year. Membership to the Virtual PPG does not require you to attend the meetings but we will engage members through online methods of communication.

If you would be interested in joining our Virtual PPG, please register your interest by clicking the link below and completing the form.
