The Clift Surgery at Minchens Lane in Bramley has operated an active Patient Participation Group (PPG) since 2009. The Clift PPG is a member of the National Association of Patient Participation. (NAPP)

An extract from the PPG Terms of Reference describes its purpose as:-

  • To operate formal liaison liaison and communication between the Patients and the Practice which acts as a channel for New ideas on how the operation of the Practice can be improved for the benefit of Patients.
  • Problems and difficulties with any aspects of the present (or planned) Practice operating arrangements or the Practice facilities
  • Any non-clinical aspect of Patient/Practice relations.
  • The Group will not deal with any specific personal or clinical matter between a Patient and a particular Doctor/Nurse/staff, for which other channels exist through the Practice Manager.

The PPG comprises up to ten patients and applicants for membership will be considered in turn as vacancies arise, subject to trying to maintain a balanced membership, reflective of the overall Clift Surgery Patient profile as far as is practicable. Currently there two vacancies and we are looking for patients from the following categories to maintain a representative patient profile – including under 40’s, those working or seeking work, single parents. Visit or email Reception for further details.
