- Lobbying to improve a whole range of health services
- Promote health matters by:
- Organising presentations on important health needs
- Producing a directory of self-care support groups
- Raising awareness of key public health messages
- Improve communications by:
- Building two-way relationships between patients and the practice
- Promoting awareness of and access to local health services
- Developing a patient library or information resource centre
- Improving the practice leaflets and website
- Influence the development of services by:
- Advising on the development of new or existing practice premises
- Representing patient views on the purchase of health services
- Co-ordinating with other patient groups to improve wider healthcare delivery
