Thank you for your continued support.
Patient Participation Group: At Issa Medical Group we are determined to provide the best possible service for you, our patients. Your involvement is essential for the development our practice and we always welcome new ideas and suggestions. We are inviting patients to join our Patient Participation Group. The group may be asked to complete surveys / attend meetings throughout the year in order to join together to develop as a service. If you would like to join our Patient Participation Group (PPG) then please contact reception staff to pass on your details. All information we ask for is fully protected under NHS Information Governance and Confidentiality rules, and is in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 (as amended). You must be a registered patient of the Issa Medical Group to take part. We want to represent all of our patients and therefore need a broad cross-section of our patients in the group - young people, senior citizens, different ethnic groups, men and women, different medical conditions.
