Patient Participation Group
The Practice would like to invite any of our patients who are willing to contribute some of their time to the development of the Practice and its Health Services.
We are especially keen to make sure that the group is fully representative of our patients and therefore invite anyone with an interest to enquire about joining.
Please ask to see Lesley Hynds or Sharon Bowater for more information.
We anticipate the group will meet 3 times a year, but arrangements for input to the group via email or post, will also be made for members of the group who are unable to attend in person, but feel they would like to contribute.

The Friends and Family Test (FFT) is an important feedback tool that supports the fundamental principle that people who use NHS services should have the opportunity to provide feedback on their experience.

Denton Medical Practice is registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
The practice had a thorough assessment of all aspects of care and we are very pleased to announce that our overall performance was graded as Good in the report from June 2015.
Screening for Cancers
We would like to stress the importance of Bowel cancer, Breast cancer and Cervical cancer screening as some of our patients are not taking part in the nationally advised screening program for these cancers.
If you receive a screening letter or pack through the post, please can you follow the instructions in the letter as this may result in picking up cancer in the early stages when it is more easily treatable.
