PPG - Patient Participation Group
What is a PPG?
A patient participation group (PPG) is a group of people who are patients of the surgery and want to help it work as well as it can for patients, doctors, nurses and all staff. The NHS requires every practice to have a PPG.
Why should I join?
You have been to the surgery as a patient, parent, carer or friend . Your experiences matter and you can bring different ideas to the surgery to help us treat patients better or to improve what we do in the same way. You will also gain a better understanding of the NHS, and gather feedback from other patients.
Will my views be heard?
Your views are important and will be listened to. It may not be possible to act on every suggestion, but all feedback is very valuable. Working in spirit of mutual respect, openness and trust, all patients views will be discussed, and, were approriate, we will work together on solutions.
How often does the Patient Particpation Group meet?
We meet at the surgery, but not to often. We know that you are busy, so we meet only a few times per year and hope that you can join us.
