Appeal to join forum

PATIENTS at a Mexborough surgery are being encouraged to have their say on how the practice is run.

Staff at Mexborough Health Centre, on Adwick Road, have formed a Patients Forum group to involve residents in decisions being taken at the practice.

The group meets bi-monthly and members can make suggestions to doctors and the management team on how to improve the centre.

Group members are now encouraging more patients to sign up and get involved.

Business Manager Linda Faulkner said: “It has been really successful so far and it has been good to involve patients in the running of the practice.

“If they make suggestions, we will listen to them and see what changes we can make.

“It’s all about making the practice better for both patients and staff.

“We would like as many patients as possible to join the group.

Anyone interested in joining can contact Linda on 01709 590590.
