What is a Patient Participation Group (PPG)?

We are a group of patients who meet regularly to decide ways of making a positive contribution to the services and facilities offered by the practice to patients. 

What is the purpose of a PPG? 

Our purpose is:

  • To give patients and practice staff the opportunity to discuss topics of mutual interest in their practice.

  • To provide the means for patients to make positive suggestions about the practice and their own healthcare.

  • To encourage health education activities within the practice.

  • To develop self-help projects to meet the needs of fellow patients.

  • To act as a representative group that can be called upon to influence the local provision of Health and Social Care.

Read our Information Sheet and the PPG Constitution.
