What is Patients’ Voice?

Patients’ Voice (PV) is the name given to the Patient Participation Group (PPG) at Hall Grove Group Practice. It has been set up to champion patients and work with Practice staff to improve the primary health services offered. This is done by: keeping members up to speed with what’s happening at the Practice; challenging current processes; initiating improvements for patient health; and supporting Practice initiatives.

Patients’ Voice membership is free and is open to all patients, healthprofessionals and carers of patients of Hall Grove Group Practice (anyone who attends either Hall Grove or Parkway Surgeries) in Welwyn Garden City.

Patients’ Voice has recently been working on:

  • Supporting the Practice to get more people vaccinated against Covid-19
  • Getting the Practice involved with ‘Cancel Out Cancer’ campaign
  • Ensuring patients have information on transport between health venues
  • Signposting to additional information to support patients’ health
  • Surveying members to find out how patients feel the Practice is coping during the pandemic
