What is a Patient Participation Group?
A Patient Participation Group (PPG) is where a group of health professionals and patients can come together to address issues that effect health and health services in their local community.
Usually connected to a particular GP practice, patient forums provide a link between practice staff and their registered patients.
The agenda of any particular group will depend upon the local needs, interests and energies of the participants, but its key role is to:
- Enable patients to have a say on how the practice operates
- Provide feedback on new systems within the practice such as booking an appointment
- Act as a sounding board for ideas Support the practice to provide a high quality of care and service delivery.
We have an active Patient Participation Group
The PPG provides an important link between the Doctors and Managers at the Surgery and the patients we care for.
We need your feedback so we can improve our services for all of our patients. If you are interested in working with us so we can keep our practice up to date and continue to meet the expectations of our patients then please do join our Patient Participation Group (see below).
