Patient Participation Group


We are proud of Oundle Medical Practice and hope you agree that we do a good job most of the time. That said, we are always seeking new ways to improve the service and are keen to hear patient’s views.

We encourage active patient participation from those who are interested in healthcare issues and want to get involved with the support and improved operation of the Practice. As such, we have set up a special forum to enable patient input and feedback.


Oundle Patient Participation Group

The Oundle Patient Participation Group (OPPG) has been in existence since 2010 and acts as the patients ‘voice’ with respect to the Oundle Medical Practice. The group is is frequently consulted on a wide range of matters relating to the Practice. The OPPG’s role is to inform, consult and advise the Practice on issues relating to patients health and well being.

The group is made up of various representatives including local residents, parents, pensioners and volunteers from local community organisations. The OPPG meets every six weeks and works as a link between patients and the practice. We also hold an annual open practice meeting in October to which all patients are welcome.
