Annual Parish Meeting & Inauguration of
Friday, 28th April, 2006
|This evening Wrington Memorial Hall saw two important occasions: the first, the annual parish meeting, with an attendance of more than 50 - a great improvement on recent years.
Chairman Roy Clements made reference to the parish council's first newsletter, delivered door to door by councillors. He took questions on matters arising from it.
|Afterwards, Wringtonians were joined by other patients of the local surgery - from Blagdon, Churchill, Sandford, Congresbury and Winscombe, for the inaugural meeting of the Patient-Practice Partnership of the Wrington Vale Medical Practice.
Drs Hooper, McClatchey, Portas and Tricks joined members of the Steering Group who'd been working for a year with Practice Manager Jose Tarnowski to set things up so far. Chairman Andrew Densham reviewed what had been achieved - the design and production of a first-rate practice leaflet by Jan Murray and Jan Lyons; the recruiting of patients to form a communication network across the area; securing lunchtime surgery access; starting to
|draw up a regular series of events on topics of interest and concern, such as out-of-hours care, establishing special interest groups for patients with specific and chronic conditions, and arranging expert speakers on specific subjects.|
|Copies of a draft constitution were considered, and the meeting unanimously agree to adopt it subject to thought being given to what number would constitute a quorum for future AGMs.
