What is a PG?
A PG is a patient led group that works in continuous partnership with the general practice.
Its members consist of current patients as well as GP practice staff, who meet to discuss practice issues and patient experiences in order to help improve service delivery.
Members of a PG play a significant role in reaching out to the wider patient population by actively ‘championing’ health and wellbeing in their local communities. PGs seek to connect with those who may have difficulty or encounter barriers when accessing healthcare services and those whose voices are less heard.
Should you decide to join Kingsbury Court PG, you will act as a ‘voice for patients’ by contributing your important ideas, feedback and suggestions!
Our PG continuously aims to strengthen the relationship between the practice and our patients, that’s you!
