About our PPG

We are always on the look out for new members – if you are interested please contact Dympna Harney Practice Manager or complete the online form.

The purpose of the Patient Participation Group is to involve patients in decisions about the range and quality of services provided and, over time, commissioned by the Practice. Overall, the aim is to promote the proactive engagement of patients through the use of effective Patient Reference groups and to seek views from Practice patients through the use of a local Practice survey.

The Cumbria Commissioning Group is looking at setting up a town wide patient participation group that is representative of all the General Practices in Workington.

If you are interested and have a couple of hours to spare one evening every 8 weeks, please contact Dympna Harney on 01900 64866.

We would like to know how we can improve our service to you and how you perceive our surgery and staff.

To help us with this, we are setting up a virtual patient representation group so that you can have your say. We will ask the members of this representative group some questions from time to time, such as what you think about our opening times or the quality of the care or service you received. We will contact you via email and keep our surveys succinct so it shouldn’t take too much of your time.

We aim to gather around a hundred patients from as broad a spectrum as possible to get a truly representative sample. We need young people, workers, retirees, people with long term conditions and people from non-British ethnic groups.

If you are happy for us to contact you occasionally by email please follow this link to open the sign-up form and complete all the fields.
