Friends and Family Test

The NHS Friends and Family Test (FFT) is an important opportunity for you to provide feedback on the care and treatment you receive and to improve services.

All NHS services are obliged to ask patients the following question:

How likely are you to recommend our services to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?

Patient Technology Survey

You may be aware that the Department of Health is looking to practices to find new and innovative ways of providing care for our patients. There is a considerable amount of technology available to General Practice that helps not just improve access to our team of clinicians, but also helps to provide advice and self help/education.

To obtain patient opinion on this subject, we produced a short online survey.  This survey is now closed and the results are available on the link below.

Patient Participation Group (PPG)

MyHealth has established a Patient Participation Group (PPG) to enable patients to become involved in decisions about the range and quality of services being provided. The group aims to meet regularly each quarter. As we wish the group to be representative of practice population we would like to hear from patients who are either interested in becoming future members when there are vacancies, or wish to become members of our Virtual PPG and contribute to key issues via email.


To register your interest, please complete the PPG Application form and send to, or alternatively give your completed form to a member of the reception team at any of our branches.



By providing us with your contact details, we can contact you every now and again to ask your views on our service(s).
