Patients have a say
A DOCTORS' surgery in Fishponds is taking part in a national awareness week to enable patients to have their say.
Fishponds Family Practice in Beechwood Road is taking part in National Patient Participation Awareness Week from June 4-9.
The practice's Patient Participation Group (PPG) is joining similar groups throughout the UK to let its patients know more about who they are and what they do.
The group will have an information display in the waiting area of the surgery and during the week patients will be able to talk to a group member about how the group represents the interests of patients and how it supports the practice.
It will provide an opportunity for patients to raise questions, offer suggestions and share ideas and comments.
There will also be other relevant information available on local support services and wider NHS issues.
