Our Patient Group

In order to improve the service we provide you, we have formed a Patient Group and would love to here from you!

If you are interested in joining the Group, or have any comments or suggestions you would like to make, please ask for further details from our Reception Team. 


The patient group, that represents Dr Shimmins and Partners at Dartford East Health Centre, is made up of some 25 patients. When ever this group meets, there is always at least one representative member of the practice present. The patient group is of mixed gender and race and are all over 40 years old. They all come from varied backgrounds, which provides a balanced view point across the group. They meet regularly in the Health centres, education room.

For more information on their progress, achievements and an overview of the patient survey and subsequent report, please read the published meeting minutes in the patient group documents section of this web site.
