We are now offering FREE NHS HEALTH CHECKS to all patients between the ages of 40-74, who do not have any long term health conditions.  Please contact us if you meet those criteria and ask to book in for a NHS Health check.


We are now using a TXT message reminder service and so you may be asked to provide your mobile number when booking an appointment, if we do not already have it.  If you do not wish to receive these reminders - please just let us know.



Welcome to the Port View Surgery Patient Participation Group (PPG) page

The PPG aims to provide and improve communications between the surgery and patients to the benefit of them both.  The group has been in existence since 2011 and continues to grow and develop.  We want to hear your views about the local NHS services and your experiences of using them - Please do join us!

There are opportunities to collaborate with other PPGs, NHS Kernow and a variety of community based groups throughout East Cornwall with a view to shaping better primary care services locally.

Structure of the PPG

The PPG is open to all patients registered at the practice and we actively encourage interest from as many patients as possible, the wider the participation, the more influential we can be.

We communicate regularly via email and this may suit  patients who may just want to be "virtual" members, so you have the opportunity to be involved, and informed, without the need to attend the meetings.

We aim to hold an informal event each year so that patients of the surgery have opportunity to meet each other, share experiences and help decide what the important issues are for the PPG to take forward.

Of course we do need a Committee to plan and run things for the wider group of patients and this Committee currently meets 6-8 times each year, this might increase if we are working on a specific project.   Any registered patient can put themselves forward to be part of this Committee. 

We also have certain Committee members who are post holders within the group.

Current Post Holders are:

Chairperson: Lisa-Marie Dennis

Vice Chair: Angie Fisher

Secretary: Dave Bamber
