Critical Friends Group
The Critical friends group was set up in 2011 to ensure that patients views are taken into account to help shape how the Practice operates. Members of the local community and Practice team meet regularly to provide critical feedback as well as having input and making suggestions on how services can be improved. The Group is also actively involved in setting up community talks on a variety of health topics to advise and inform the community on key health issues.
