Patient Group annual update
We have held three meetings throughout the past year to establish the views of our patients and to look for ways of improving our service.
One area highlighted from a previous survey was that patients would welcome appointments outside of our “normal” core working hours. The group surveyed our patients to establish exactly when most people would like us to open, this showed that patients would prefer to come during the week rather than at week-ends and the evenings were slightly more favourable than early morning. As a result of this we now have late appointments with both the nurse and the doctor on a Thursday evenings.
The group are quite passionate about finding ways of informing patients of the wealth of help and support in the wider community and we discussed ways in which we could communicate this. We have put up a poster but realise that not everybody will notice this, we decided that attaching a note to prescriptions for certain types of medication which are linked to an illness or disease giving contact details would be a good idea and we have adopted this approach.
We have had 2 speakers attend our groups to explain what their service has to offer our patients, they were Tameside Carer's group and Miles of Smiles. These were both excellent presentations and again highlighted the help and support that is available.
The group were also keen to recruit new members and we discussed ways of achieving this, it was decided that we would print larger posters and try to make them welcoming. Some of our members kindly provided photographs of themselves which we used to produce 2 posters.
