Maylands Patient Group 

In January 2011 the surgery set up a patient group.  The aim of the group is to provide a forum for our patients to discuss health promotion and local voluntary and social activities.  For more information, please see Items on the right of this screen, or contact Ruth Thacker, Assistant Manager.

We have a dedicated email address for the PPG which is hav-pct.ppg-maylands@nhs.net
