As patients, our primary role is to work in partnership with the Practice staff to help bring an understanding of services from a patient perspective. We also get involved in helping to give patients a say in the way services are delivered to best meet their needs through discussions and carrying out surveys with other patients, as well as sharing our own experiences.
At the meetings, information about performance and challenges are openly shared with patient members, giving us a great opportunity to confidently discuss (and where appropriate, constructively challenge!) how services are delivered, with the key people who are responsible for those services. It also gives us the opportunity to better understand the wider context that the Practice must work within, not least with changes to Government policy and funding.
