Describe steps taken to ensure that the PPG is representative of the practice population in terms of gender, age and ethnic background and other members of the practice population:

 

In order to get the widest possible range of views we attempted to recruit patients from every group within our patient population.  Understanding the demographics of our established community made it relatively simple to ensure that there was a true representation of our surgery?s registered population.  A brief questionnaire which identified age, sex and ethnicity was distributed to all patients wishing to join our Patient Reference Group and this ensured that we had true representation. Along with the invitation to join the group patients were provided with a FAQ sheet to dispel any myths and answer any questions

We used the following methods to recruit patients from every group within our patient population

 

  • Using our knowledge of patients and contacting those we thought may be interested in joining
  • GPs broaching the subject with patients during consultations
  • Posters and leaflets in the waiting room
  • Messages printed on prescriptions
  • Invitation to join displayed on TV screen in the waiting room
  • Details of the group and an application form is included in our registration packs
  • Details and application form available on our website- www.biscotgrouppractice.co.uk  our website has the option of Google translate for those patients where English is not their first language

 

The compilation our group naturally, given the makeup of our practice, was initially mainly young Asian/Asian British patients- so to try and encourage participation by other groups of patients the Partners, Practice Manager and Patient Support Services Manager approached different segments
