Since November 2012 a Patient Participation Steering Group with 10 patient members, a practice partner and the practice manager has worked to promote effective communication between the practice and its patients and to ensure that patients are involved in the development and monitoring of services at the Medical Centre.
To ensure the widest possible patient participation all interested patients are encouraged to register their interest in the wider on-line Patient Participation Group that
acts as a reference group for the consideration of issues that need to be tackled and have been identified as priorities by the Steering Group
- advances new ideas and proposals for the Steering Group to progress in discussion with practice partners and management
All you need to do to become involved is to let the Practice Manager (Tushar Shah) know you are interested - make sure he has your contact details. You will then
- be contacted automatically about all Open Meetings
- be asked for your views on specific issues being considered by the Steering Group
- be able to bring your ideas and concerns directly to the Steering Group for them to progress directly with practice partners and management

Camden Patient and Participation Group (CPPEG) is a body composed of elected members of practices’ Patient Participation Groups and nominated members of a number of key health concern groups in Camden. Its role is to give advice and guidance to the Camden Clinical Commissioning Group (Camden CCG) from a patient perspective, and to ensure that there is patient involvement at the beginning and during the Commissioning processes undertaken by Camden CCG. In March 2018, Leon Douglas and David Richards from the West Hampstead Medical Centre PPG were re-elected as patient representative of the Camden West Locality on CPPEG.

What is the Virtual Patient Participation Group?
This is a group which has been set up in response to patients that have said they would like to be involved in a Participation Group but are unable to attend meetings.
As a member of the Virtual Patient Participation Group, we will send you e-mails asking for your opinion on a range of topics.
You decide how often and when you would like to answer.

By doing this, you will help the practice to provide an accessible and responsive service and you will be amongst the first to hear about news and updates.
23.11.2020 - Message from Dr J Barnett
Dear WHMC patient,
I would like to thank you all for the pleasure and privilege of being your family doctor, in some cases for almost forty years, such that I have come to regard many of you as almost family or friends rather than patients.
I sincerely hope that I am able to return work at WHMC at some point in the future, in the interim may I wish you all good health and success.
With Best Wishes,
Dr Jon Barnett
