The SHA Patient Network meeting covers the area of Wednesbury, Smethwick, Oldbury.
Patients who are registered with the local GP practices, Patient Participation Groups (PPGs) attend their local area’s Patient Network meetings. In some meetings, practice managers and voluntary sector representatives also attend the meetings.
The SHA meetings are very friendly and welcoming. Members discuss a wide variety of subjects, and members also report on local health related issues both in the area and at their GP practices. The members meet every three months at local venues.
Members of the Patient Network meetings also get invited to larger events such as visits to local hospitals, the Annual General Meetings and any consultation events.
Detailed below are the Agenda and Notes of the meetings from this group:
