People registered with a Dorset GP practice are being encouraged to find out more about how they can help influence health services in their community.

Patient Participation Groups (PPGs) work in partnership with GP practices and allow patients to contribute their views, make suggestions for improvements or get involved in events.

An information event is being held at St Mary’s Primary School, Blandford on Thursday May 9 from 6 – 8pm, where people can speak to staff and PPG members, find out more and get their questions answered. There will also be short presentations from local GP, Dr Simone Yule and the LiveWell Dorset team.

For more information, call 07980 751520 / 07766 924612 or email
