Guy Lawfull

Chair of the KEY PPG

Our purpose is to represent all patients and we meet with the partners and management team of the practice three or four times a year to advise about issues that are important to patients, to learn about changes taking place in the practice, to support the practice, and to work with the practice team in improving the flow of communication between us all.

Virtual Group

The Key Medical Practice would like to have a wider group of patients in a Virtual Patient Participation Group.   Members of this virtual PPG would be invited to have their say on practice matters through regular short surveys and be kept up to date with practice news.  We would love to hear from all patients this way, so  please do leave your email address at reception.  This is a great way for you to let us know what you think if you don't have the time to attend meetings.  The administration of the surveys is carried out by the practice manager and your email addresses would only be used for the purpose of surveys and sending information about the practice, so your details will be kept confidential.

The PPG holds a meeting once every two-three months which is always attended by the practice manager and by a GP partner. In between meetings the PPG circulates emails such as agendas and minutes of meetings to each other and the practice manager. The practice manager encourages communication from and between the PPG and answers specific queries from members when required. These are usually by email but can on occasion be by telephone.

The information you supply us will be used lawfully, in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998. The Data Protection Act 1998 gives you the right to know what information is held about you and sets out rules to make sure that this information is handled properly.
