Patient Participation Group (PPG)

A PPG is a Patient Participation Group and the people involved are a group of patients registered with your own GP Surgery.  They have no medical training but have an interest in the services provided.  They work in partnership with the medical centre to ensure that there is a good relationship between patients, GP and other professional staff.  The aim of a PPG is to represent patients’ views, support diversity and to work in partnership with the medical centre to improve common understanding; help patients to take more responsibility for their health; contribute to improvements of services and quality of care and work towards better and improved communications. For more information please click here PPG Information Leaflet.

We currently have 7 PPG members who meet at the surgery every month. The group will be kept to a reasonable number of members in order to be effective. Therefore anyone wishing to be involved in the PPG or who wants to know more should contact the PPG by email at SWLCCG.c83067@nhs.net
