Patient Participation Group


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

Patient Participation

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.

It was formed to help improve two way communication and to enable out patients to have an input in to how our Practice operates. The group aims to meet four times a year, usually on a Thursday evening, here at the Surgery.

If you would like a say in what we do and how we do it please apply to join the PPG (see below).
