About the PAG
The Monifieth Patient Advisory Group (PAG) provides help and assistance in shaping and advising the practice team on current ways of working and planned innovation.
Their objectives are:
- Represent the patient population
- Initiate and maintain an active dialogue between the Patient Advisory Group (PAG) and the practice, e.g. via notice boards and suggestion boxes
- Contribute to improvement in health service provision by providing constructive feedback to the practice on current and proposed new procedures and initiatives
- Communicate to the practice responses and feedback from patients
- Take action to help improve the health of practice patients e.g. via initiatives to increase patient engagement with health education and promotion to increase self-care
- Take action to link the patients and practice with community groups and other organisations that can improve their overall health (physical, mental and social)
Members of the PAG are volunteers, who come together at least 4-6 times per year to meet with a GP and the Practice Manager.
Membership is open to patients of practice aged 16 and above, and there are a maximum of twelve members, including three office bearers: Chairperson, Secretary and Treasurer.
If you would like more information on becoming a member of the Monifieth Patient Advisory Group, please contact Eric Blyth, the Practice & Business Manager who will put you in touch the chairperson, Mrs Edith Christie.
The practice are grateful to all members of the group who give freely of their time, which is much appreciated.
