Thank you. Your choice has been saved. You can change your preferences at any time.
We encourage patients to be actively involved with the Practice to help develop and improve health and social care for the people of Totnes. It is hoped that the Patient Participation Group (PPG) will act as a ‘critical friend’ to the surgery and strike a balance between support-ing the surgery in its efforts to improve facilities whilst, at the same time, being willing to voice concerns where problems are identified.
The Group could learn more about how the surgery is run as an independent business contracted to work for the NHS. Patients can take part in influencing how the service is delivered to improve the healthcare of all patients. In turn, patients will become more aware of the financial constraints which have to be taken into account when considering the provision of services.
It is hoped that the development of the PPG will facilitate patients working together with health professionals to improve services to everybody.
If you would like to be involved in the PPG initiative, please give your details to a member of our reception staff. We can then keep you updated with information about the forum and the meetings.

In 2015 our Leatside Surgery was inspected by the Care Quality Commission, and judged to be ‘Outstanding’, placing it amongst the top 1% of such services in England. This huge achievement is a real accolade for the quality and hard work of the whole staff team at Leatside, and we are indeed fortunate to be their patients.
