Patient Participation Group

The Westfield Medical Centre Patient Participation Group exists to promote co-operation between patients and staff to the benefit of both and to support the practice to provide a high quality of care and service delivery.

We meet regularly (usually quarterly) in the practice to discuss a wide range of topics that concern us as patients and staff. These topics range from practice-specific issues to broader topics concerning the NHS that may be relevant across Leeds.

We feel that patients will benefit through:



    • The opportunity to recommend improvements and to raise issues which can lead to action

    • A better awareness of how their practice operates

    • A better understanding of the role and workload of a GP and practice staff

    • Being enabled to look after their own and their family’s health.



GPs and practice staff will benefit through:



    • Improved communication with patients

    • The potential for a more mutually respectful relationship

    • Increased patient participation and the support of the practice’s aims & objectives.



The group works with the practice but is independent from it.

If you are interested in joining the group, please contact Sue Bates-Patrick in the Patient Support team for more information.
