This will help the NHS plan its response to coronavirus by showing where the virus is spreading and how it affects people.
The Patient Participation Group (PPG) is made up of patient representatives from the Firs House and Telegraph Street registered patient list. The group is part of a wider network of patient groups from Cambridgeshire and Peterborough GP Practices, and representatives from the Clinical Commissioning Group. It acts as a sounding board for ideas on how the Practice can improve the experience of its patients and provides a good opportunity for two-way communication between patient representatives and the Practice.
The PPG meets bi-monthly, generally on the first Tuesday of the month from 6.15p.m. – 7.45 p.m. and is supported by a senior GP Partner and the Practice Manager who attend the meetings.
The PPG has been actively involved in organising a number of wide-ranging health promotion events in partnership with local community centres in Histon and Cottenham. Topics have included Health Benefits of a Mediterranean Diet, Advances in Cancer Research and Diagnosis, Falls Prevention and more events are planned over the next twelve months.
If you are interested in joining the PPG, please contact the surgery receptionist.
More information about the PPG the minutes of past meetings can be found at www.firshouse.com and on the notice boards at Firs House and Telegraph Street surgeries.

Our surgery and PPG members were delighted to take part in a Health and Wellbeing Event at Impington Village College on 20th April. We wanted to do something that would be useful for young people aged 11-18.
Members of the PPG worked alongside staff at the college to facilitate the event, however the students took responsibility for planning and organising it. They identified topics felt to be relevant to students at the college such as healthy eating, sexual health, stopping smoking, prevention of skin cancer and services on offer at Firs House, and invited appropriate groups and organisations to attend the event and to provide information to students.
As part of this event, PPG worked with staff and asked students to take part in a survey that asked for their views about their local doctors’ surgery. The results are published in the report Impington Village College - PPG report for students.
