Patient Participation Group

The Birches Medical Centre is alwayus looking for more members of the Patient Participation Group (PPG). It would be particularly helpful to have to have one or two younger people of working age. If you are interested please contact one of the practice managers, Victoria Sawyer or Rachel Wilson at the Birches.

We usually meet four times a year (the demands are not too onerous!) and the minutes of our meetings are posted for you to be able to acces (please click the link below.
