Are you enthusiastic about the health and wellbeing of your community?

Are you a patient of Branch End Surgery, The Bellingham Practice, Burn Brae Medical Group, Corbridge Medical Group, Haltwhistle Medical Group, Humshaugh and Wark Medical Group, Prudhoe Medical Group, Scots Gap Medical Group, Sele Medical Group or White Medical Group?

Then the West Northumberland Primary Care Network (PCN) wants your help.

The GP practices across the Tyne Valley are working together to give you a more co-ordinated and wider range of services.   We want to set up a Patient Participation Group (PPG) to understand what patients and carers experience in our services and what they want in the future.

Although not members of the PCN, Adderlane Surgery and Riversdale Surgery receive services from our PCN, so patients from these surgeries are also welcome to join our PPG.

Being part of the PPG means having a voice and participating in the development of the range, shape and quality of our services. 

PPG members are volunteers and meet regularly (virtually at the moment). 

You may already be part of a PPG at your local practice, and we are keen for you to bring your experience to this new wider group.  If you have never been involved before then there is lots to do and it’s an exciting time to get involved. We can put you in touch with an existing member of the PPG to hear first-hand about what a great opportunity this is.
