PPG Newsletters, Minutes & Articles

Newsletters

The PPG newsletters will appear as regularly as we hold meetings.  If you have any problems downloading a Newsletter, please email us via watchalppg@btconnect.com

We would welcome any feedback, particularly regarding any concerns you may have about the service you have received – or are about to receive – from the Practice or any department within the NHS.

Note; this email address is for queries relating to the PPG or the web site in general, not for matters relating to personal health, appointments, medical treatments, prescriptions etc.

Contact the relevant surgery by phone for any such issues you may have.

We operate a Steering Group and  Full Group.  The Steering Group normally consists of two member’s from Watlington and two from Chalgrove who meet more regularly with the Practice Manager to review Practice issues.  The Full Group meets three or four times a year to review the Practice situation. We also try and have a speaker at the Full Meetings who gives us a talk on medical or social care matters.

We try and issue a Newsletter after each Full Meeting.

The latest one is December 2019

Medical Articles

The PPG holds meetings a number of times through the year. One objective of these meetings is to learn more about the operation of the Practice and to pass on information to the rest of the patient population.

At each meeting there is usually a speaker who gives a talk on topics requested by the PPG. Following each talk we will publish an article including a summary of the topic.

Please e-mail us on wat.chal@nhs.net with your feedback and any suggestions for future topics.
