The Monkspath Patient Participation Group was formed in 2012 and has developed very much as a “Patient Led” PPG.
Our Monkspath PPG is a member of the Solihull PPG Network.
We have a representative on the ‘Heart of England Foundation Trust’ (HEFT for short). We also keep in contact with the Solihull CCG (Clinical Commissioning Group).
All patients registered with Monkspath Surgery are eligible to attend the ‘Open Meetings’. These meetings are normally held on the second Tuesday of alternate months (starting each year with February). They are held on the Surgery premises and start at 7.00 pm sharp.
The organisation and administration of our PPG is conducted by the Steering Group who tend to meet on the ‘in-between months’. The regulation of this Steering Group (SG) is governed by the Constitution. This Steering Group membership is elected at the AGM (normally June) and the elected SG members choose the various officers (again subject to the Constitution). Currently these are:
Chair: Alistair McLachlan
Vice Chair: Tony Green
Secretary: Ginny Lassam-Jones
Treasurer: Michael Evans
