As part of a government led initiative to encourage better dialogue between GP practices and patients, Alford Group of Doctors formed a PPG committee which met for the first time on the 20th of December 2011.
The objectives of the group shall be to promote the benefit of the patients of the Practice without distinction of gender, race, colour or political, religious or other opinions or characteristics of individuals by encouraging development and quality of health promotion and health care services; to achieve this aim by liasing with the GPs and staff, other community health workers, Health Authorities and other persons or organisations concerned with health care.
The group shall be non party in politics and non-sectarian in religion. The group shall have power to affiliate to the National Association of Patient Participation Groups and to other organisations with similar charitable objects. The Group shall at all times respect diversity and will be committed to the principles contained within the Equality Act.
