We have a group of approximately 18 patients, some of whom have worked alongside us since January 2007. Their aim is to be a communication between Patients/Staff/Doctors/Nurses.
The Friends of Eastwood Primary Care Centre meet on average every 6/8 weeks at the Surgery. Meetings tend to last approximately 2 hours The team have participated in staff training, helped with flu clinic's and hope to grow in strength and participation.
The group leads the development and implementation of practice patient surveys, with a focus on "helping the practice identify patients needs and views".
We are currently in need of some younger members to ensure we are more reflective of the practice population . If you would like to join in please have a word with Debbie, or Diane at the Surgery and come along to a meeting, see if it is suitable for you. The time commitment can be as little or much as you are able to give.
