KMP PPG Project


Kingswinford Medical Practice Patient Participation Group ( KMP PPG), The Art Corner


    Image of the KMP PPG Children's Art Corner



    KMP’s PPG recently obtained funding from Dudley Purse Fund to set up a children’s art corner within the Practice waiting room. The art corner was suggested by the Practice business Manager as a way of improving facilities for children whilst they wait to see the Doctor or Nurse. A bid was worked on and sent for approval. We were very fortunate that the PPG Purse Fund supported the project. We agreed to design the project around healthy lifestyle and happiness. Posters were designed asking children to draw pictures around the topics of: “Things that make me happy” and “Food that is good for me”.

    We approached a local printer who produced two colourful, children friendly posters for display, plus a further poster explaining what the PPG is all about information on how to join our PPG. The children are awarded with colourful achievement stickers when they complete their picture. Their pictures are displayed on a notice board. A survey will be conducted next year to obtain feedback from patients.
