Patient Participation Group

If you have time to attend 4 meetings a year (lasting approximately 1 hour) would you consider becoming a member of our Patient Participation Group? We are always looking for members. 

This group is formed to discuss the services offered by the practice and to decide upon an area each year for change/improvement. An action plan is then formed to carry out the actions agreed upon. Should this appeal to you please find out more here

Westfield Forms

The partners at Carterknowle & Dore Medical Practice are not in a position to sign Westfield forms sanctioning chiropractor treatment, as this is not a form of management that we routinely recommend. Whilst we recognise that some patients feel they benefit from chiropractor treatment, we are not assured of its effectiveness or that it is free from risk of injury or inappropriate exposure to x-rays.

We therefore leave it to the discretion of Westfield as to whether they fund the course of chiropractic treatment the patient has undertaken at their own discretion.
