THE "FRIENDS OF WRAFTON HOUSE" PRACTICE PARTICIPATION GROUP

This group was set up, with the co-operation of the practice, to provide support for the practice and patients.

They have a base in the room off the reception area of Wrafton House. Since its formation, money has been raised by subscriptions, donations and raffles. These funds have been used to:

• Purchase additional medical equipment not available through the National Health Service.

• Purchase items for the benefit of patients eg air conditioning in the waiting room, blood pressure testing equipment, weight and height equipment.

The Patient Participation Group is here for the benefit of all patients and welcomes donations and new volunteers. It has raised funds and furnished their room with specialist equipment. On some mornings they are able to offer blood pressure checks and weighing prior to your appointment to see the doctor or nurse. They are always looking for new members to join the group. If you have some spare time to either help with the running of their room or raise funds they would be delighted to hear from you. More information is available from reception.

There is regular contact between the group and the doctors and staff. The group is recognised by local NHS Trusts and PCTs as representing patients.

The PPG can be contacted through reception if the room is closed.

PRIVATE SERVICES

The practice offers a variety of private services including private medicals, certain travel immunisations, signing of certain certificates, reports to solicitors, private consultations and private visits. Please ask in reception for details.

LETTERS AND REPORTS

Letters and reports always take a few days to process. If you require an official document (eg insurance reports, passport forms etc.) please give reasonable notice of one week.
