Cranleigh Medical Practice (CMP) Supporters
Welcome to the patients group page!
This year we have changed our name from the “Patient Participation Group” to the “Cranleigh Medical Practice Supporters Group”. We are focusing on practical ways to help out the surgery with projects, and also to improve the two-way flow of information between the surgery and our community.
The group members are a variety of ages and backgrounds who come together to keep a finger on the pulse of changes in the surgery and to keep you informed of what's happening. We also provide feedback to the practice on concerns and questions from patients. Working with other groups in the area we share good ideas and learn from them as well. We do not get involved in individual cases or political causes.
Earlier in the year we visited the new housing developments in the village to provide information to new residents on the services available at the Medical Practice. We attended the recent Health and Well Being day at the local Leisure Centre to represent the Medical Practice.
Currently we are working on a series of leaflets giving advice and information on other NHS services available to patients and when to use them rather than the GP.

In late July we will be meeting with the practice to discuss the results of the National Patient Survey click for link. You may be aware of the huge changes to the appointments system and the launch of online consultations this year, which has come in since this survey was carried out.
We will soon be working closely with the admin staff at the Practice on a ‘housekeeping’ project.
Before we know it, we will be in flu season again and the group are closely involved at the flu clinics, signposting patients and helping things run smoothly. Patients always give fantastic feedback about how “flu Saturdays” run so efficiently and it’s great to be a part of that! At flu sessions, we take the opportunity to show people all the on-line services available to them.
There is always something for patients to get involved in, so if you would like to join us please email the practice via firstname.lastname@example.org
