About the Patient Group

The surgery would like to know how we can improve our service to you and how you perceive the Practice and the staff.

The main aim of the PPG is to provide effective communication between the staff and the patients of Banbury Cross Health Centre and to support the practice by improving services.

The objectives of the group:

  • To discuss practice and NHS issues
  • Ideas generator
  • Information dissemination
  • Positive influence for practice and patient relationships
  • Supportive of the needs of the local health population whilst recognising the pressures on general practice

The group meet monthly at the practice – other practice members are usually present too including Senior Management and GP Partners.
