Patient Representative Groups

Scarborough and Ryedale Clinical Commissioning Group (SRCCG) is committed to involving patients and the public in their commissioning decisions and the Scarborough and Ryedale Patient Representative Group (SRPRG) was established to enhance the engagement across the locality.

Each GP Practice within SRCCG locality nominates a patient representative from their GP Practice group to the SRPRG that meet at least quarterly and more frequently when required in order to carry out the business of the Group.

This is a valuable engagement group, chaired by our lay Governing Body member, Andy Hudson.

The purpose of the Group is:

  • To provide two-way communication between GP practice and the SRCCG
  • To provide advice to practices on establishing and maintaining an effective GP Practice Participation Group
  • To provide regular updates on the work of SRCCG to practice populations through wide distribution of the stakeholder letter
  • To undertake wider involvement/engagement activities assisting the CCG in engagement through service development group, gather feedback and attend events as required

If you are interested in being involved with your practice group, speak to the Practice Manager.  Further information on Scarborough and Ryedale Patient Representative Groups is available in this presentation.

Scarborough and Ryedale Patient Representative Group induction pack

This induction pack has been developed for members of the patient representative group, designed to provide members with details that is helpful in their role. We want to ensure the induction pack includes relevant and appropriate information that can be shared with all new members who join the group.
