Patient Participation Groups (PPGs) are made up of volunteers interested in healthcare issues, which meet to decide ways and means of making a positive contribution to the services and facilities offered by the surgery to patients.
They are an excellent way for practices to keep in touch with the patient perspective, and improve the patient experience. They can also help to influence the commissioning of services and support the practice through more practical ways like fundraising or organising support groups.
Please note that a PPG is not a forum for individual complaints or for single issue campaigns .
We plan for the meetings to be held quarterly, however we may also be in contact by e-mail or telephone too.
We are looking for the proactive engagement of patients, therefore i f you are interested in applying to be on our PPG, please download an application form (select the "application form" tab above), or contact our Practice Manager, Simone Bone at the surgery.
If you wish to be involved but do not want to attend meetings, we will also be setting up a virtual PPG. We will be posting minutes of our meetings on the website, and if you have any areas which you would like to be considered by the PPG please click on the "Contact us" tab above.
