Patient Participation Group (PPG)

Patient Group

The Surgery has had a Patient Participation Group who has been supporting the practice in the past years and we now plan to make it a regular part of our practice and hold these meetings on an quarterly basis.

Membership is voluntary and we have selected patients at random bearing in mind the range of different demographics of our current patient list.

In order to obtain a range of views, suggestions and opinions we are targeting all age ranges, genders, nationalities, abilities and religions.

Patient Participation Group (PPG) is normally made of practice staff and patients that are representative of the practice population. In some cases, the PPG could be facilitated by patients with no practice involvement. The main aim of the PPG is to ensure that patients are involved in decisions about the range and quality of services provided and, over time, commissioned by the practice.

Using the PPG, GP practices are encouraged to promote the proactive engagement of patients and to seek views from practice patients through the use of local practice surveys. The outcomes of the engagement and the views of patients are published below if this practice has a PPG.

We advertise the Patient Participation Group Meetings on our Surgery website and on the Surgery notice board in patient waiting area.
