Get involved with your GP practice

Get involved in commissioning and with a patient participation group (PPG) by talking to the practice manager at your GP surgery.

You can also contact the practice manager to find out who the mandated clinician is. It’s not necessarily a senior partner. A mandated clinician is the member of the practice mandated to work on commissioning new services with NHS Kernow. You can find contact details for the practice manager on your GP practice’s website.
