The Practice Champions are volunteers who work with the Practice to improve services. They support service improvement, run groups for patients and help connect the Practice with local voluntary groups. The Practice works with them in a collaborative way, with much of the Champions’ work arising from their own ideas. They also provide a source of additional capacity to assist the Practice in its health promotion and outreach work.
It’s very important that volunteers themselves contribute ideas, shape priorities and, ultimately, choose what they want to do.
