GP Appointments for 'Working Patients'

Medical Centre

Haddenham Medical Centre is keen to hear from 'Working People' registered with the Practice who can find it tricky on occasions to obtain suitable appointments with their GPs — i.e., at times that enable them to minimise the loss of time from their professional responsibilities.

The principal aim is to obtain feedback about the current appointments system and how this works for those patients whose employment constraints mean they have much greater challenges over daytime availability compared, for example, with retired folk. To generate a range of options going forward, the request is for helpful suggestions please.

A newly energised Patient Participation Group (PPG) will be co-ordinating this research following the election of a new Chairperson and Vice Chairperson, a process that was completed on Friday 28th June (details here).

Please submit your comments, observations and practical suggestions in writing. The PPG is especially keen to receive some positive suggestions for improvement, please — while bearing in mind that the GP service has to operate within available budgets and people resources.

Please send your comments to the PPG chairman at: chairman@theppg.org

Or drop a written note into the Medical Centre addressed to the Chairman, PPG. Many thanks.
