Patient Participation Group

The Aims of the Patient Participation Group

A Patient Participation Group (PPG) is a group of volunteer patients, carers and GP practice staff who meet to discuss practice issues and patient experience to improve the service.

If you would like:

  • 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 & Family Test feedback to propose developments or change.
  • To support health awareness and patient education.

We aim to build a Patient Forum which includes patients from as broad a spectrum as possible to get a truly representative sample. We need young people, workers, retirees, people with long term conditions and people from non-British ethnic groups.
