Patient Participation Group

What does the PPG do?

The PPG provides a platform for your views and opinions about the services and facilities offered at Middlestown Medical Centre.

We will discuss these thoughts with the Practice.  We will also seek your opinions on changes which may be considered for improving services and facilities, bringing together both your views and those of the Practice to improve the services and facilities available to you.

We already produce a quarterly Newsletter which carries information for patients about the Practice.  We will have members in the surgeries regularly and you can speak to them.

Your thoughts are important.  We need to hear from you if we are to be your voice in the way the Practice provides services for you.

If you would like to join the PPG or feel you can help in any other way please email us using the link under 'Contact the PPG'.

Contact the PPG

You can email your thoughts and ideas to the PPG at: middlestown.surgery@nhs.net 

You can also write to the PPG Chairman at Middlestown Medical Centre, New Road, Middlestown, Wakefield WF4 4PA. However, please be aware that we cannot enter into any discussion regarding your own health, the treatment which you receive from the surgery, handle any complaints, or deal with any confidential issues arising from your own personal circumstances.
