I had a message a few days ago from The Clayhanger Kid himself, Brian Stringer. He’s involved with a new community liaison project going on at Holland Park Surgery, the medical practice operating from The Parkview Centre in Brownhills.
I wonder if you would mind giving us a bit of publicity on your blog?
Holland Park Surgery at the The Parkview Centre, Brownhills are setting up a Patient Participation Group. The aim is to give patients, doctors, and staff the chance to talk to each other about the Practice, to help patients get involved in decisions, and work together to discuss such things as opening times and appointment systems.
A PPG lends power to a practice when applying for extra facilities for a surgery – for instance Holland Park Surgery has room for a visiting physiotherapist, which could alleviate lengthy hospital visits. Warfarin clinics, and small operations facilities, are other possibilities to aim for.
The only criteria to join the group which meet every 3 months at the surgery, is that you must be a patient of Holland Park Practice.
Anyone interested can call in in person at the Surgery in the Park View Centre, Brownhills or call 01922 604500 for details…. you can even send them a message using their online comment/enquiry form.
