Building Work at Botley Medical Centre

Building work will commence on Monday the 8th July at Botley Medical Centre. We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause advance. We are working towards making the Practice lovely and new for our patients!

FRIDAY DROP IN CLINICS

After trialling and auditing our appointment system, we have found that the number of appointments used during the drop in clinic are actually less than the ones that are offered during a normal clinic. Therefore the Practice have decided to stop this service.

We will be now offering our normal clinics on a Friday which can either be pre booked in advance or booked on the day, to allow more patients to be seen by the Doctors.

Thank you for your understanding.

 


  This week Dr Maddy Podichetty has left Botley Medical Centre.

We all wish her the best of luck with her new commitments!

If you were one of her patients you will have been now transferred to a different doctor's list. It can take a bit of time to get used to a new doctor but if you feel you would like to change , please, do not hesitate to let us know in writing and we will do our best to accommodate you with a different doctor.

Our Patient Participation Group (PPG)


We are sure most of our patients are aware of the huge changes within the NHS currently involving GP practices managing new ways to provide funding and commissioning services.


Patients need to have a voice to say how this money should be spent to provide the best services for our practice community. The overall aim of our group [PPG] is to develop a positive and constructive relationship between patients, the Practice and the community it serves, ensuring the practice remains accountable and responsive to all its patients’ needs.


Who we are


We are the Patient Participation Group (PPG) of Botley Surgery. We are registered patients of the practice who have volunteered in response to requests to establish a PPG within the practice.


What we are here to do, our aims and objectives:


To promote the benefit and well-being of the patients of the practice without distinction of age, gender, race, and other equality characteristics


To support and facilitate positive and effective two-way communication between the practice and its patients


To offer constructive criticism as appropriate


To represent the patient voice in the development and implementation of practice policy


To encourage and support the practice in involving patients in their own care


To support and encourage the practice in its dealings with other bodies


How we work


A chair and secretary of the PPG are elected annually at an AGM


We meet approximately two-monthly, a minimum of four times a year, and at other times as necessary


Members of the practice, including partners, attend PPG meetings on a regular basis


The PPG membership seeks to reflect the patients’ profile of the practice (e.g. age, gender, race, and other equality characteristics) as well as seeking representation from different components of the patient population such as carers, patients with long-term illnesses or disabilities (whether physical or mental), and parents with young children


The PPG membership is committed to confidentiality, including individual patient experience information


We seek to establish the views of patients towards the Practice in whatever way may be feasible or practical, such as an annual survey or the Friends and Families Test


We seek to involve ourselves in the work of the Practice in whatever ways may be helpful to the Practice and its patients


We review these Terms of Reference regularly to monitor our effectiveness in fulfilling them.
