The newly formed Patient Participation Group of the Bourne Hereward Group Practice in Exeter Street held its first meeting on Monday, April 22.
The meeting was chaired by Jenny Scott and the new practice manager Sally Michael was in attendance and welcomed to the practice.
The group’s first newsletter is being circulated throughout the practice area and patients may request copies by e-mail or from the practice reception desk.
The group, made up of patients of all ages, aims to represent the patients and work closely with the practice staff to improve relations and practice facilities.
The Lions Club of Bourne has agreed to provide small pots which are kept in patient’s fridges and contain personal and medical information, which are useful to ambulance crews when a patient has to be taken to hospital, allowing up to date information to travel with them.
