Buckden Surgery Patients Association (BSPA)
Buckden and Little Paxton share a Patients Association and we aim to have a representative from each of the villages with patients on our doctors' lists.
One of our main roles is to provide a means for patients to make postitive suggestions about their surgery and healthcare, but we also arrange health education evenings at least once a year and always welcome suggestions for topics. If support for these evenings increases we will increase the number of presentations.
We also hold a number of fundraising events to provide additional equipment and facilities for all patients. For instance, we funded the new check-in touch screens at Buckden, the automated doors for the main entrance and have provided blood pressure monitors for home use and syringe drivers for housebound patients.
Acting as a Patient Representative group we attempt to influence and improve the local provision of health and social care by sitting on a Clinical Commissioning Group Committee and, where relevant, writing to CCG Chief Executives, Members of Parliament and Government Ministers. We are not a conduit for complaints as there is a well established procedure for that, should it be required.
A newsletter appears each month in local village publications giving surgery news and other developments and they can also be seen below.
The BSPA notice board in the surgery shows a list of the committee members and copies of the minutes of our meetings.
Please do support us - we are there to help all patients.
