St James's Practice Patient Participation Group
St James's Practice are keen for new members to join their Patient Participation Group, a group of patients who will be regularly asked to give their views about how the practice is doing. We would like to be able to find out the opinions of as many patients as possible.
We are asking if people would like to sign up to be contacted occasionally to be asked questions about the practice and how well we are doing to identify areas for improvement.
To join, simply download the form linked below, complete it and print it out, and hand it to Reception staff when you next visit the Practice.

This is a group of volunteer patients who are involved in making sure the practice provides the services its patients need.

Your contact details will be kept safely and securely and will only be used for this purpose and will not be shared with anyone else.
How often will you contact me?
Not very often. We will only contact you a few times a year.
Do I have to sign up?
No, but if you change your mind, please let us know.
What if I no longer wish to be on the contact list or if I leave the practice?
We will ask you to let us know by email if you do not wish to receive further messages.
