Minutes of the last meeting:

The minutes were accepted as being a true record.


Updates of outstanding Action points:

AP121 MR to compile a letter, on behalf of the group, that will be sent to Ms Emma Parke Diabetes UK - CLOSED.


AP122 SL to arrange for the WPPG notice board to be turned back to its usual position - CLOSED.


DL informed the group that (CD) had resigned from the group in August. It was suggested, and agreed by all present, that a letter of thanks should be sent to CD thanking her for all of her efforts etc. AP DL


DL also stressed the importance that all members need to keep him informed about, for example, if they’d be attending a meeting. This may sound petty but it is vital in order to confirm if the meeting is to go ahead as per the constitution. The same applies to receipt / acknowledgment of emails and attachments.


Planned Business:

Annual revalidation of the constitution (ALL)

AP proposed that this would be better carried out in October, this was accepted / agreed by all present, other than that the document is correct. DL to amend the constitution. AP DL


Re-election of officers (ALL) 

Chair MR proposed DL and this was seconded by AH – passed.

Dep Chair AH proposed EB and this was seconded by MR – passed.

Note taker DL proposed MM and this was seconded by AH – passed.


Review of the Diabetic awareness week / project (MR)

MR started this and an open discussion took place around how we would proceed so that we’d be ready for next year (June? 2019).


How can WPPG help the practice encourage “Health” as well as curing sickness? (MR)

MR asked this question and again this stimulated a healthy discussion and it was agreed that SL would ask the partners / doctors how WPPG could help this (MR) AP SL


Raising the profile of WPPG (MR)

MR asked for ideas as to how we could do this.

DL circulated a draft newsletter that he’d produced, all agreed this appeared to cover what we were trying to achieve. DL to arrange distribution. AP DL


Practice Accommodation / Information:

Nothing to discuss / mention.


Any Other business:

EB asked if anything could be done about the cars that turn left out of the carpark. All agreed that this does happen but as there are already signs there’s not much more that the practice could do.


Meeting closed at 2:30pm

The next meeting will be held on Monday 26th November 2018 at 1.30pm
