Guide to sending in photos
If you are requested to send in a photograph, please use this guide to help.
Our research showed that 90% of patients who sent in photos were treated successfully without needing a face-to-face appointment
PLEASE NOTE – if you are not comfortable sending in a photograph, please do not be afraid to say no, the clinician will completely understand. if you do decide to proceed, your photograph may be stored onto your medical record permanently and may be viewed by other clinicians.
Our thanks to Consultant Connect for their helpful guide, which can be seen in full here
PPG Meeting – Cancelled
We are particularly fortunate to have a very active Patient Participation Group (PPG) at Appletree. It is becoming increasingly important that the patients’ collective voice is heard when it comes to the design and delivery of healthcare.
- Works with the Practice to offer the patient perspective on the services it provides.
- Helps to improve communication between the Practice and the patient population.
- Encourages patients to take more responsibility for their health.
- Provides practical support for others in the community.
A PPG is NOT the Practice’s complaint system (there is a robust complaints procedure in place); nor is it a forum to air personal issues. But neither is it a Doctors fan club. To be valuable the PPG must have the confidence to challenge the Practice in line with any issue brought forward. It should be self organising and patient led.
The benefits of an effective PPG are felt by the patients, the Practice and the wider community in which it operates.
If you are interested in learning more about the PPG please ask for a leaflet at reception. Alternatively you are very welcome to attend a meeting. The Group meets bi-monthly and the dates are published on the Practice web site.
Next Meeting: Cancelled until further notice
