The meeting focussed on the following; 

  1. Updates on GP practices and PPG activity
  2. Review of Chairs’ survey of GP practices

Key findings of the meeting;

  • Issues with text messaging to patients from Homeground/North Swindon and some confusion between the surgery and pharmacy about medication for a relative – and the need for family carers to be kept informed.
  • Lack of clarity on how practices would get sufficient supplies of Flu vaccine given that orders had been placed by PCN's months previously.
  • Places available on the 'Our Health, Our Future Panel'.
