Patient Participation Group

PPGs have an increasingly important role to play in helping to give patients a say in the way services are delivered to best meet the needs of the community, how?

  • Advising the practice on the patient perspective
  • Communicating with the wider patient body accurately and honestly
  • Organising health promotion
  • Influence the practice or wider NHS to improve commissioning

Come and join our PPG, send your GP an email if you would be interested in helping.

The group currently consists of 10 patients from different diverse patient groups.  We would particularly like younger people and/or teenagers to join the group. The idea is to work with the medical, nursing and other support staff within the practice to raise any ideas and issues and to help patients take more responsibility for their own health.

Currently the Patient Participation Group meets bi-monthly. A Notice Board is situated in the surgery waiting areas.

Join our Patient Participation Group

All registered patients are able to join our Patient Participation Group. People of all genders, ages, ethnicities, and those with health conditions and disabilities are encouraged to join.

Members should as far as possible, be representative of the surgery population.
