Patient Participation Group

Patient Participation Groups (PPGs) are made up of volunteers interested in healthcare issues which meet to decide ways and means of making a positive contribution to the services and facilities offered by the surgery to patients.

They are an excellent way for practices to keep in touch with the patient perspective and improve the patient experience.  They can also help to influence the commissioning of services and support the practice through more practical ways like fundraising or organising support groups.

Please note PPG is not a forum for individual complaints or for single issue campaigns.

Our PPG aims to meet every 2 months.

We are looking for the proactive engagement of patients across all age groups.

If you are interested in applying to be on our PPG or would like more information please ask the receptionist.
