Every GP practice is required to have a Patient Participation Group (PPG). The Marisco Patient Group is the PPG for Marisco Medical Practice.
Unlike many PPG's we do not believe in restricting membership to a select few. Our aim is to recruit as many members as possible so that we can ensure a representative voice for Mablethorpe and the surrounding areas. The practice has 14,000 patients and we currently have 136 members - so we have some way to go!
The constitution dictates that we have a committee, which is voted in each year and which comprises 11 members. Because we are an active group, we do ask that our committee members actively participate in the growth of the group and the services we provide. For normal members, whilst you are welcome to all of our Open Meetings.
We are a group of patients of the practice who are passionate about supporting the practice in its aims to deliver high quality medical care in a professional, yet friendly, patient-centred and compassionate manner to the people of Mablethorpe and the surrounding area.
One of our roles is to represent patient views and opinions about the services available at the practice, but we also offer many other services for Marisco patients.
We meet every 8 - 12 weeks at Mablethorpe to discuss changes and improvements to the NHS that may effect patients. Members also report back on other meetings that they have attended on a variety of health related subjects.
We do not deal with individual medical or personal complaints, these being dealt with by the practices own existing procedures, but we do put forward ideas and recommendations from members.
Members come from a wide range of backgrounds and share their experience and knowledge with each other and the practice who also consult with us and receive feedback on current and future plans.
Anyone registered as a patient at Marisco Medical Practice can become a member of the Marisco Patient Group. All you need to do is let the practice know that you want to join and they will pass your name and contact details (Only) to us and we will be in touch soon.
