The Patient Involvement Group (‘PIG’) is a small group of volunteer patients who meet every 6 weeks to talk about key issues regarding the Practice. There is also a new “Virtual group” through which members can keep in touch and raise issues for discussion. Everyone may suggest items for consideration and there is always an Agenda for each meeting.
Meetings keep people informed about what is going on generally in General Practice and Health & Social Care as well as considering what needs to be done in Sedlescombe and Westfield Surgeries. Members can get involved with individual projects or take on responsibility for following up anything the group needs doing. Potential new members may discuss their interest by contacting [email protected] or ideally by filling in the form on our leaflet. If you are interested in being involved, pick up our PIG leaflet or ask at reception, or you can download and print one by clicking here!
Our Patient Group consists of:
Rod Eldridge– Chair,
Keith Newman – Practice Manager
Kevin Katner, Lindy Latreille, Monika Betson, Diana Nichols, Rod Eldridge, Tina Beadle, Karen Atkinson, Jackie Saul-Hunt & Jackie Smith
If you would like to know more about what the PIG does in more detail and information on how it operates, you can find this here Purpose & Protocols
If you wish to contact the PIG you can do so via our email address [email protected]
Please note: The PIG does not deal with concerns or complains raised by patients, the route for any issues of this type is through the Practice Manager where they can be fully discussed and followed through. The PIG is not a fundraising organisation for the Surgeries.
