Patient Group Overview

What is a Patient Participation Group?

The surgery has an active Patients Participation Group (PPG). It is a direct link between you (the patient) and the medical services provided by the practice. The group provide a forum for patients to contribute to the decision making and service development within the surgery.

What is a Virtual Patient Participation Group?

This is a group which has been set up in response to patients who have said they would like to be involved in a Patient Group but are unable to attend meetings. As a member of the Virtual Patient Participation Group we will send you emails asking for your opinion on a range of topics. You decide how often and when you would like to answer.

To join either our Patient Participation Group or our ‘Virtual’ Patient Participation Group, please complete PPG Sign Up Form and return it to a member of our Reception Team at the Surgery.

What does the PPG do?

It will act on your behalf to:

  • Contribute to the improvement of services
  • Improve communication between the practice and patients
  • Provide practice support for change
  • Organise ‘awareness’ days for patients on specific problems, eg obesity, men’s health, women’s health, carers’ support, etc.

What it is not:

  • A forum for individual disagreements between you and the practice
  • A Doctor’s fan club
  • A burden to Practice staff
