Patient Participation Group


Our Patient Participation Group (PPG) meets to provide a forum for discussion about the practice.

What is a Patient Participation Group?

The PPG is a group of active volunteers that meets with and works in partnership with Practice staff and GPs to promote health by fostering the highest possible standard of primary care through patient participation. It is a Patients Group, which is open and free to all adult patients of the Practice.

The Group: 

  • Acts as a means of communication between the Practice and the community in order to help patients use Practice services and facilities in the best way possible and to help the Practice implement policies influenced by patients.
  • Acts as a signpost to the Practice’s systems for suggestions and complaints and will also, from time to time, carry out surveys in conjunction with the Practice.
  • Has a role in assisting in the assessment of community needs in order to help the Practice improve its services.
  • Liaises with the Practice to help provide appropriate health education for the benefit of all those patients who are registered with the Practice.
