Patient Participation Group (PPG)

Patient Group

We held our AGM and Open Meeting on Wednesday 31st March, where Dr Pasha provided a presentation on the day-to-day runing of Woodcote Medical post Covid. 

Last year the PPG held a successful Open Meeting on Sepsis and regularly attended both Croydon Health and Croydon PPG Network meetings representing Woodcote patients. 

If you would be interested in joining the committee, please contact the Chair, Jeff Cunliffe, for further details.

About our Patient Participation Group

The care we give you here at Woodcote Medical is important to us. We are part of the NHS national programme for patient feedback, called the 'Friends & Family Test'. The information you give us will be confidential and used to improve services in our Practice. Thank you.


What is the 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. Our Patient Participation Group was originally set up in 1992 and was reconstituted in 2014.

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.

This is YOUR Group and we urge all patients to join by contacting Jeff Cunliffe, our Chair, by email or by telephone on 07764534048.
