Patient Participation Group (PPG)

We have recently reformed our Patient Participation Group. They meet monthly and will be considering priorities for the coming year. If you are interested in joining the group please ask for details at reception.

A Patient Participation Group (PPG) is generally used to describe a patient group based in a GP practice. It is led by patients but run in partnership with the GP practice to:

  • Give views as a patient on how services can be improved and receive feedback on those views
  • Help patients to be more informed and responsible for their own health
  • Build a positive working relationship with the practice
  • Meet other patients and share experiences
  • Support the practice to help patients to stay well
  • Help to improve communication between practice and patients

Each PPG is unique. It makes decisions on its own structure, priorities and work programme. As it acts as a bridge between patients and the GP practice, it is important that each PPG has a broad base of patient involvement and views. We will try to make our PPG as representative of our practice population as possible, and encourage all patients to get involved.
