Welcome to the Dacorum Patients Group
We are a group of local residents working to ensure patients have a truly independent voice in healthcare.
The Dacorum Patients Group (DPG) grew out of
the Local Patient & Public Involvement Forums that were disbanded in 2008.
Its main aim is to be an independent local group working to make the patient's
We are committed to:
Collecting, sampling and quantifying patients' views, wishes and concerns about local NHS delivery in the Dacorum area
Presenting any findings regarding patients' views to the local NHS services
Ensuring that the patients voice is heard on all health matters
Always keeping patient needs at the heart of any discussion
Working with practice Patient Participation Groups (PPGs) as much as possible
Identifying and spreading best patient management practice between GP practices
Identifying and raising any areas of local concern
Ensuring that patient's needs are central to any healthcare decisions
Membership is free and is open to any Dacorum resident or anyone registered with a Dacorum GP. We meet monthly and our members are involved in practice PPGs, local health committees and other health working groups. We also represent patients at Herts Valleys CCG meetings and public forums.
