GP Patient Reference Groups

GP PRGs

All of the GP practices in Barnsley have some form of Patient Reference Group (PRGs). These are groups of practice staff and patients who have an interest in health and social care issues and who want to get involved in decisions about the range and quality of services provided and over time, commissioned by their practice.  

To see what your local groups is doing check out your practice website or ask at reception.

Representatives from these groups form the Barnsley Patient Council, who meet up once a month.

You can also join OPEN (Our Public Engagement Network) which will keep you informed and highlight opportunities to get involved in local commissioning decisions.
