Patient Participation Group (PPG)

We have established a Patient Participation Group which meets 4 to 6 times a year.

The purpose of a Patient Participation Group is:

  • To give Practice staff and Patients the opportunity to discuss topics of mutual interest.
  • To provide a means for Patients to make constructive suggestions about the Practice and specific medical conditions.
  • To give a Patient view on proposed changes to service
  • To encourage Health Education activities within the Practice.
  • To develop self-help projects to meet the needs of fellow Patients, e.g. befriending, help with transport and bereavement support .
  • To act as a representative group that can be called upon to influence the local provision of Health and Social Care.

The aims of the Patient Participation Group:

  • To be a voice for the Patients.
  • To help the Patients to understand Practice decisions.
  • Aim to maintain and improve Patient satisfaction and experience.
  • Be a link between the Patient, the Partners and Practice staff.
  • Support the Practice in continuing to improve the service to the Patients and discuss our Practice performance data.
  • Help patients to understand how they can build on responsibility for their own health.
