Are you passionate about the health and wellbeing of your community?
If you are a patient of a West Northumberland GP primary care network (PCN) practice (see list below), join the patient group and have your voice heard! The West Northumberland PCN Patient Group is a group of patients, carers and practice staff which provides a patient perspective of services provided within the PCN.
What does the patient group do?
Patient group members support the PCN in its aims to provide high-quality, integrated person-centered care in a proactive and cost-effective way and feed in ideas as well as help get information out.
Collectively the group supports the PCN in its purpose by providing a patient-orientated view on changes to services proposed by the PCN and by suggesting improvements to services based on patient experience.
How can I take part?
There are two types of membership; a core group and a virtual group.
The core patient group meets every month, in person, at alternating venues. The virtual patient group is for those unable to attend the core group meetings but who are still keen to get involved.
Virtual group members participate mainly via email and/or social media, helping share information with others, and attend quarterly patient group meetings online via Teams, together with core group members.
Members from any gender, age, ethnicity are welcome and all opinions and input is valued.
If you would like to join the West Northumberland PCN patient group, or have any questions, please email email@example.com or visit the West Northumberland Primary Care Network Facebook page.
