Patient Participation Group

Friends of Avisford Medical Group

Known as the "Friends of Avisford Medical Group", the group was formed in 1998 and is a registered charity.

Historically, the group's activities have largely been focused on fund-raising to provide equipment not normally supplied by the NHS. More recently, however, the main emphasis of the group has switched to providing support to patients and, consequently, to the Practice.

Fund-raising remains one of the group's activities - and over £70,000 has been raised to date – click here to see how the money has been spent..
