Planned Business:

Review of the Diabetic awareness week / project (MR)

As previously discussed (see relevant outstanding APs above) MR outlined the progress / future plans. The group thanked MR for his continued commitment to this project, this is something that he is very passionate about and as such he’s gladly taken the “lead role”.

MR closed by confirming that June 10 – 16 would be the dates for the awareness week this year.


Raising the profile of WPPG

As previously stated this was an ongoing issue and one that we needed to continually consider. DL referred to AP 133 & 134 and said that he would produce a poster in an attempt to generate some interest.

MR suggested that may be a PPG awareness week could be ‘run’ at the same time as the diabetic awareness. This suggestion was discussed and in principle agreed.


Practice Accommodation / Information:

Nothing to discuss / mention.


Any Other business:

Dr Garg attended the meeting in order to inform the group about Primary Care Networks (PCNs), further information would be made available as / when anything is received / known.


Meeting closed at 2:20pm
