The greatest asset we can ever hope for is good health.
Unfortunately, things do go wrong. When they do, our first call for help is to our local clinic. There a doctor will hopefully diagnose the root of our problem and prescribe a suitable course of treatment or failing that refer us to a consultant with the appropriate expertise. The course of treatment is then in other hands but not entirely because the consultant will keep your doctor informed. We all know this, but can we as patients participate in the processes that these few words above glide smoothly over? Most definitely yes!
If you are registered with the Flitwick Surgery you now have a new opportunity to help improve its services to patients and influence its future direction.
The Patient Participation Group has been set up for this purpose and is looking to recruit patients from all age groups and backgrounds, whether you are a regular or occasional user of the surgery facilities.
Meetings take place at the Surgery on either a Monday or Tuesday evening from 6.00pm to 7.00pm. Contact Catherine Pearson, Practice Manager, for details or complete the online request form to register your interest.
The next meeting date TBC.
