Your Participation

A PPG is a group of patients interested in health and healthcare issues, who want to get involved with and support the running of their local GP Practice.

Most Patient Participation Groups (PPGs) also include members of practice staff, and meet at regular intervals to decide ways and means of making a positive contribution to the services and facilities offered by the practice to its patients.

Many of the Malling Health practices have a PPG. If you would like to find out about joining your local PPG or how to set up one at your surgery, please email: [email protected] or call us on 01480 219 317.

Patient involvement in health is currently a high priority in the NHS. With the transition to GP commissioning this will become more and more important to practices.

The practice is always looking for the views of our patients regarding the services we provide. If you are interested in becoming a member of the practice patient participation group please contact the surgery for more details

Covid-19 Vaccination Programme Update

Patients are asked not to contact the surgery regarding COVID-19 vaccinations.

St Neots Health Centre is part of a PCN (Primary Care Network – group of surgeries) with Lakeside, Great Staughton and Monkfield surgeries and the vaccination programmes are being organised by us together as a PCN. You will get contact by text or phone or letter in due course.

We have started to offer the Covid-19 vaccination to our patients following the Government guidance and priority groups. Eligible patients will be contacted directly to arrange an appointment when it is your turn.

Please don’t contact the NHS to seek a vaccine before then.

If you have not yet been approached about having the Covid-19 vaccine, please read the information: why you are being asked to wait.
