Patient Participation Group (PPG)

We are currently looking to expand our Patient Participation Group!

A Patient Participation Group is a voluntary group of patients, carers and GP practice staff who meet quarterly at the surgery to dicuss practice updates and patient experience to help improve the services provided at Sellindge Surgery and Mid Kent Primary Care Network.

  • Be more involved with the Practice.
  • Make suggestions and improve the Practice.
  • Ensure that complaints are taken on board and necessary changes are being made.
  • Find out more about healthcare provisions in the local area
  • Make a contribution to the NHS and wider community.
  • Have your voice heard and witnessing change happen when working as a part of a group.
  • Learn more about the NHS and GP Practices.

If you are a registered patient and would like to become a memeber of the PPG, please show your interest by emailing Emma at Sellindge.surgery@nhs.net

COVID -19 Update Regarding 19th July 2021

From the 19th July 2021 the surgery will continue with the following:

Patients coming to the surgery will still need to wear a mask, use the hand sanitiser upon arrival, socially distance and use the intercom before entering the surgery. Our staff will continue to wear appropriate PPE.

We have made this decision as patients coming to the surgery are often sick, vulnerable and may be unvaccinated due to medical reason. We feel that these precautions will help protect everyone. We also need to minimise the number of our staff catching COVID so we can maintain a functioning service, so for these reasons, these measures are vital.

Our consultations will continue as they have throughout the pandemic and will be offered via phone, video or face to face (if clinically appropriate). We are also using e-Consult, which can be seen below.

We have all come so far in trying to minimise the impact of COVID and need to continue to protect our staff and patients.

We would like to take this opportunity to remind people that we have a Zero Tolerance policy in place at the practice. Our staff have been experiencing higher levels of physical, emotional and verbal abuse. We do realise that people can become upset when they are poorly but abuse towards staff is NOT acceptable.
