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.
We currently have about 12 PPG members who meet at the surgery in the evening every couple of months. It was agreed with the current members that we should keep the group to a reasonable size 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Minutes from the PPG meetings are available to read on the Minutes tab on this web page.
The PPG also produce a regular newsletter which can be found on the Newsletters tab on this web page.
