Gordon House Surgery‘s Patients Participation Group is now a well established group where patients, members of the medical staff and the Practice Manager are able to meet to discuss matters relating to the surgery.
If you wish to become a member, please ask our reception team for further information about joining the team.
Meetings and Events
The Forum meetings are arranged by our PPG steering group. The group consists of 4 active members from the patient population and we meet approx. 4-5 times a year dedicating a lunchtime to focus on practice development and discuss areas of improvement.
Thank you for attending our first online patient forum webinar online with Dr Kate Harrison on Thursday 10th December 2020.
We dedicated this event to the late John McNeil, a member of our PPG who sadly passed away earlier this year. John’s active role in the PPG and influence over the years encouraged us all down a route of thinking more about mindful practice in our everyday. He had a vision to start talking therapy sessions for our patients at the surgery, and his final words to the group were:
“I’m aware of folks suffering mental health and stress issues due to being locked down, adding to other problems…….I’d be very happy to help to make a difference for anyone while putting my enforced isolation to good use would seem beneficial.”
John touched all our hearts, and will truly be missed for all the positive work he had done and the impacts he made to the community.
We were delighted with a fantastic turnout online with over 100 patients who connected with us online to hear the fantastic presentation on mindfulness and wellbeing.
Dr Kate Harrison presented on Mindfulness & Wellbeing,
- understanding mental health, sharing tips on self-care, with a focus on mental wellbeing at home and work.
- building resilience and recognising psychological concerns in yourself and others
- giving practical advice and guidance tips on wellbeing.
- open Q&A for patients to interact with Dr Harrison
