Get involved in shaping healthcare in your local area
If you are a member of a GP practice patient participation group (PPG) you can also help to influence the health care decisions of the clinical commissioning group.
Practice patient participation groups can send representatives to take part in the Ivel Valley Locality Patient Participation Network The Network provides the opportunity for you to become involved in shaping health care across the Ivel Valley area.
What are they doing?
We want to provide you with lots of different ways to give your views and experiences of local health care. In March, we ran social media workshops for our patient groups and GP practices to find out how we could use social media to gather the views of our population including younger people and hard to reach groups.
Connect to your practice on Facebook
We have been developing patient participation group blogs and practice Facebook pages to communicate with you and involve you in what we do. Two of our practices Arlesey Medical Centre and Biggleswade Health Centre have already set up Facebook Pages. To connect with them go to the practice website
