How the COVID pandemic has impacted on the work of the PPG

In order to keep everyone safe there was an urgent need to reorganise how Practices worked and consultation was not feasible at the time. The PPG continues to meet regularly via Zoom and notes of these meeting are on the website and circulated to the PRG. The usual annual survey has not been possible but about 400 Adelaide patients contributed the Healthwatch survey on the impact of lockdown. This generated a mass of data which will inform how the Practice can move forward as the pandemic progresses. Two years annual reports are missing but the chair plans to address this with a briefer report before the end of 2020 (Practice workload permitting).  Practice open meetings have been impossible but locally virtual meetings have been used creatively for Camden wide engagement.  On a positive note new technology is opening up creative ways of wider engagement opportunities.  Patient engagement is not dead – just changing.
