Woodlands Patient Participation Group
We need your help !
Would you like to be involved in improving the services we provide ?
You can do this by getting involved in the practice Patient Participation Group - Woodlands Patients Voice - and sharing your patient perspective with us.
In a time of many changes in the NHS we want to make sure we are doing the best we can with the resources we have and your views matter.
The more people we can involve the better and the more meaningful the decisions are.
Our group meets bi-monthly. All patients are welcome.
