Online Survey - should we have a virtual PPG?
Parkside have had a successful Patient Participation Group (PPG) since 2011.  The PPG is a group of patients who have an interest in the services provided by the practice.  The aim of the PPG is to represent patient's views and cross barriers and to work in partnership with the surgery to improve common understanding.  For more info, see our PPG page.

A Virtual PPG would enable us to reach out to a more diverse audience of patients that are not able to attend meetings but are happy to be contacted by email.

Please complete our short online survey  Many thanks.

EPS - Electronic Prescribing Service
Parkside Group Practice now offers an Electronic Prescribing Service (EPS). EPS is an NHS Service. It gives you the chance to change how your GP sends your prescription to the place you choose to get your medicines or appliances from. If you use a regular chemist/pharmacy for your medications your prescription can be sent electronically from the GP surgery to your nominated chemist/pharmacy.  For more information please speak to your pharmacy about EPS.

The emergencySMS service lets deaf, hard of hearing and speech-impaired people in the UK send an SMS text message to the UK 999 service where it will be passed to the police, ambulance, fire rescue, or coastguard. Simply by sending an SMS message to 999 you can call for help and the emergency services will reply to you.  For more info please see http://www.emergencysms.org.uk/
