Dr Mark Howcutt
Haddm Medical Centre

Haddenham Medical Centre has re-energised its Patient Participation Group, with the election of a new Chairman and Vice Chairman from among the patient population.

Chairman: Keith Milmer, based in Haddenham (Email: chairman@theppg.org)
Vice Chairman: Barry Lynch, based in Dinton (Email: barrylynch@gmail.com)

Both are extremely keen to help the professionals shape the primary health care for patients of the Haddenham practice in a way that delivers the very best possible health service for the constrained resources available.

This is vitally important as NHS resources become ever more stretched and GPs assume (some rather reluctantly) a greater role as gatekeepers and purse string holders for secondary care services, including:

  • Elective hospital care
  • Rehabilitation care
  • Urgent and emergency care
  • Most community health services
  • Mental health and learning disability services

Perhaps more fundamentally, patients of the Haddenham Practice may have hopes and expectations that are not currently being met, even given the limited resources.

The role of the PPG is therefore to seek feedback from all patients registered with Haddenham Medical Centre, and to help facilitate dialogue with the professional staff so they can shape GP services in ways that are consistent with expressed patient needs and priorities.

So, if you are a patient of the Haddenham practice, please write to the PPG Chairman, with your response to the following:

1. What attribute of the health service provided by Haddenham Medical Centre do you value most highly — and why?

2. What area is in need of most urgent attention — and why?

You can contact the PPG Chairman either by email, letter or telephone. Here are the details:

Email: chairman@theppg.org
Letter: via the Medical Centre
Tel: 01844 290 244

If you live in one of the surrounding villages (Stone, Dinton, Ford, Cuddington, Chearsley, etc, etc) you may prefer to contact the PPG Vice Chairman, who has a greater appreciation of the patient concerns for those who are more remotely based, and have to travel into Haddenham. Here are his contact details:
