Our Website Development Team needs some help!

 

www.cuddingtonandsandiwayonline.org was created 5 years ago as an output from the Cuddington Parish “Village Plan”.  The main aim has been to raise awareness of existing services, activities and facilities in the village and to communicate news and opinion which embraces  all village sources.  The Parish Council continue sponsorship and support for the website.

The website is typically visited by 2,000 ‘unique visitors’ each month and receives ~3,500 visits per month, with users accessing multiple pages each visit.

The Website Development Team are tasked with regular validation and updating of all the information displayed.  They aim to ensure that the News / What’s On sections of the website always remain up-to-date and relevant.

 

We urgently need:

  • Help from two or three local residents who can check out and document news stories and validate some of the ‘Directory’ information

  • Technical help to update the various pages within the website.

Danebridge Patient Participation Group (PPG)

The local Parish is covered by a number of GP Practices based in Northwich, Weaverham and Frodsham.  The most popular, and the only one with a local Surgery (on Weaverham Road, Sandiway), is Danebridge Medical Centre. This page refers only to the Danebridge Patient Participation Group (PPG) - other GP Practices will have their own PPG groups and should be reached through their websites / offices.

The PPG, sometimes also known as the PRG (Patient Reference Group), continue to work with the Practice for the Practice. The PPG is a committee of voluntary patients who support the work of the practice – this unique partnership between patients and their practices is essential to achieving high quality and responsive care. The Danebridge committee meet monthly along with practice representatives to discuss matters arising and to discuss on-going suggested improvements within the practice. From 1 April 2015, it has been a requirement in the GP Contract for all practices to have a PPG.

The role of the PPG includes:

  • Being a critical friend to the practice;
  • Advising the practice on the patient perspective and providing insight into the responsiveness and quality of services;
  • Encouraging patients to take greater responsibility for their own and their family’s health;
  • Carrying out research into the views of those who use the practice;
  • Organising health promotion events and improving health literacy;
  • Regular communication with the patient population.

The PPG would welcome any views and/or concerns you may have, but they must be about general issues. You can address any mail to Danebridge PPG, c/o Danebridge Medical Centre (see www.danebridge.org.uk/danebridge-medical-centre) or email your comments to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. You can also drop a note in at any of the three reception desks. The PPG would love to hear your views and concerns, but they must be about general issues - the PPG cannot cover personal matters. Please take up any personal issues directly with the surgery.

The PPG contains over a dozen volunteers, and a number of them live in our local Parish:
     Russell Smith (Webmaster of this website), Sheila Bowker, Les James.

Should you wish to discuss any relevant topic with one of these local PPG members, please send a message to the This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (listed on the “Contact Us” page) and somebody will call you.
