Home » News » Supporting Medical Centre Extras

Haddenham Medical Centre has a Patient Participation Group (PPG) which seeks to play a significant role in providing helpful feedback and offering practical help and support to the practice, helping to raise standards of care locally and influencing the provision of wider health-related services via the Aylesbury Vale Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).

Regular PPG meetings are held at the Medical Centre in Haddenham. These meetings provide opportunities for members to hear about service changes or improvements being implemented at the Medical Centre, and to give feedback about their personal experiences as patients, carers or Fish Scheme drivers. Those patients who are unable to attend meetings in person are warmly invited to contact the PPG officers who will arrange for meeting notes and other relevant communications to be forwarded.

Fundraising

The PPG runs a fundraising lottery called the PPG 200 Club to help provide the medical centre with items of equipment and extra facilities that it would otherwise not be able to offer.

In 2018 the PPG 200 Club enabled the purchase of a Fingertip Pulse Oximeter, two Multi Reading/Recording Blood Pressure monitors and two additional High-Backed Armchairs in the waiting area to help patients with limited mobility. The PPG also worked on a new dementia friendly signage project with the Medical Centre. The first stage of this project has now been installed. The cost of the full project is going to be in excess of £3,000 and has been made possible by generous grants from the Haddenham Beer Festival Trust and the Haddenham Fete Committee.

Patients are invited to help support the PPG's 2019 fundraising programme by joining PPG 200 Club Lottery. The application can be downloaded by clicking on the Word document or the PDF on this page.

Alternatively, it is possible to join the PPG 200 Club online by clicking here.
