The Hollies Patient Forum

What is the Hollies Patient Forum?

The HPF is a ‘Patient Participation Group’ and allows patients to offer their views, experiences, suggestions and ideas to the Practice Team through a strong and close working relationship between patients and the Practice.

 It is the patient voice of the Hollies Medical Centre.

Recently the HPF has provided valuable patient experience feedback including views on telephone and on-line appointment systems, disabled parking, access to the building and COVID-19 arrangements. We also provided assistance with health promotion initiatives at the Hollies and Lo’s Pharmacy.


If you would like to get your views heard- you can join the HPF e-group. The e-group is an email group so you do not need to attend meetings to be involved.

 Why should I Join the HPF e-group?

As a patient of the Hollies Medical Centre your views and opinions matter. By joining the HPF e-group you can describe your experiences of the Hollies Medical Centre, air your views and share your ideas for improvements by confidential email.


The HPF e-group should represent as wide a range of Hollies patients as possible - all ages, backgrounds, cultures and personal experiences are welcome.

When you join the e-group you will be able to email your views, suggestions, experiences and ideas for improvement, confidentially, to the HPF Steering Group.  You may also be invited to participate in surveys, or even help with some of the improvements described in the action plan if you wish.

Please join us!

When joining the E-Group ... 

You will receive feedback on issues raised, plus agendas and notes from the quarterly Steering Group meetings so you are up to date with relevant developments at the Practice and the ongoing work of the HPF.


Please note: The Hollies Patient Forum does not deal with individual patient complaints.  These should be sent to the Practice Manager.
