Patient Group

A government initiative in 1987 was the catalyst for the formation of what we now know as the Papworth Patients’ Link.  Our aims are

  • good liaison between surgery staff and patients and the well-being of all
  • provision of beneficial services, equipment and amenities above those the doctors are required to supply

Papworth patients generally agree our surgery offers an excellent service, but there is always room for improvement. We want to be responsive to current needs and would like to encourage more involvement from a wider representation of the 7,100 patients on the Surgery List.

If you would like to help please submit the “Join Patient Group” form.  The Under 40’s are particularly under-represented!!  We know attending meetings isn’t always easy whatever time they are scheduled, and  are particularly keen to hear from anyone who has experience of “virtual groups”.
