Getting Your View

The group would like to contact patients on occasion by email and/or text so that they can obtain the views of the widest group of patients possible. We would like to obtain your email address and mobile phone number to do this. Please complete the Patient Contact Form to provide your consent for this.

Virtual Patient Participation Group

We realise that many patients are unable to attend meetings due to pressure from studies, work or family commitments but may want to have a say in what we do.  We are always interested in hearing feedback from patients in order to improve patient service.  If you would like to receive surveys from the surgery from time to time, you can join the Virtual Patient Participation Group.  You must be registered as a patient at Laindon Medical Group in order to join.  

Email your full name and date of birth to virtualppg.lmg@nhs.net and we will add you to the Virtual Patient Participation Group list.
