Whyteleafe Surgery has formed a patient group which meets during evenings on a regular basis at the practice. The group is to be known as the Whyteleafe Patient Forum and aims to provide a patient perspective to inform the running and future of the practice.
Current members of the group are:
Mr Richard Allen
Mrs Susan Cornish (Chairman)
Mrs Wendy Denne
Mr Peter Dunmill
Mr Gordon Frost
Mr Tony Lidbury
Mr John Ritchie
Mr Bernard Robson
Mr Ronald Shrieve
Mrs Suzanne Sullivan
Mrs Liz Wallace
Mr David Muniz Stephens
The group would be pleased to receive comments from patients and these should be delivered via reception marked for the attention of the Patient Forum. Alternatively messages can be delivered via the comments section on this website and these will be forwarded to the Chairman, Mrs Susan Cornish.
The next meeting of the Forum will be on Thursday 20 September at 7.00pm at the surgery. Please let the Practice Manager know if you would like to attend.
Patient Reference Group
We would like to hear from patients across all age groups and with a wide range of views and backgrounds. We have therefore also set up a Patient Reference Group consisting of patients who are willing to be actively consulted by email to provide constructive feedback and suggestions.
If you would be interested in joining either of these groups we would be pleased to hear from you – please contact the practice manager for further information.
