Patient group

We have an active patient participation group at our practice.

Royal Primary Care has an active Patient Participation Group made up of volunteer patients from the practice’s eight surgeries in Chesterfield, Clay Cross, Grassmoor, Inkersall, Staveley Ashgate, Holme Hall, Whittington and Brooklyn in Heanor. They meet monthly on a Thursday afternoon virtually via Teams.

The PPG provides a link between the practice and its patients, acting as a ‘critical friend’ to support improvements in care and patient experience. The group is led by patients with staff providing regular updates and information about new and future developments such as staffing, appointments and vaccination programmes.

Membership of the PPG is free and open to all patients registered with Royal Primary Care together with surgery staff. We welcome members from all age groups, ethnic backgrounds and those with disabilities to help ensure our group truly represents our patient population.

Our PPG meeting notes can be found in the news section.
