Seaside Medical Centre is lucky to have an active Patient Participation Group (PPG) that meets at the surgery every 4 months to discuss the business at Seaside Medical Centre. We are seeking new members for the PPG, young people, workers, retirees, anyone with a few hours to spare. With the PPG's input we endeavour to improve the service and quality of care that is provided to their patients. Of course we still encourage anyone that would like to sign up to be a virtual group member. If you would be interested in joining the group please put your details below so we can contact you.

This survey will be anonymous, but a minimum amount of personal information would be helpful.
