We share and discuss this information with our patient participation group and consider ways we can improve.  For practice changes see under

Local public consultations, surveys and engagement activities

A patient participation group can also influence wider consultations occurring in the local area which go beyond the practice. A collective opinion from a patient participation group can help influence local changes. You can also have your say individually.
