Patient Participation Group

What is a Patient Participation Group (PPG)? Patient Participation Group Definition A Patient Participation Group (PPG) is a group of patients, carers and GP practice staff who meet to discuss practice issues and patient experience to improve the service. Purpose of a PPG: To give patients and practice staff the opportunity to meet and discuss topics of mutual interest. To provide a means for patients to become more involved and make suggestions about the healthcare services they receive. To explore issues from patient complaints and patient surveys, contribute to actions plans and help monitor improvements. To contribute feedback to the practice on National Patient Survey results and Friends and Family Test feedback to propose developments or change. To support health awareness and patient education.

To help us with this, we have set up a patient participation group so that you can have your say. The patient participation group meets bi-monthly on a Monday 5:30pm -6:30pm. We would like the group to represent our patient population to include some of the following: young people, workers, retirees, people with long-term conditions and people from non-British ethnic groups etc.

We are still interested in new members joining so please contact or ring the surgery on 01282 731501 if you are interested in becoming a member and the practice will provide further details.

Your Views are important

If you can’t attend meetings, and you have a view, this is still important to us. The group would like to contact patients on occasion by email and/or text so that they can obtain the views of the widest group of patients possible. We would like to obtain your email address and mobile phone number to do this.
