Patient Participation Group (PPG for short)

The PPG for the patients:

Our PPG allows patients the opportunity to hear the latest plans and developments of their GP practice and to feedback on those plans. Patients can add other topics that are important to both themselves and other patients of the practice. What works well for patients and what is not so good. All opinions are valued no matter who you are or what you have to say.

We are currently looking for new members to join our PPG and everyone is welcome to join. We meet approximately every 2/3 months for an hour, normally a Friday at 4.00pm.

This quote is from our current PPG member:

“Since joining the PPG it has allowed me to better understand what is happening in my practice and why. How the practice operates and why. Who is who in the practice that as patients we can see for help and advice (not just GP’s), and what works well from a patient perspective or might be good to change or improve. All PPG members are allowed to speak freely and all ideas and views are listened to. I now feel part of my GP practice and hope to add value in the future.”

The PPG for the practice:

Each PPG is unique: evolving to meet local needs. The PPG works with the practice to:

  • Offer patient perspective on services provided by the practice
  • Contribute to the continuous improvement of services
  • Foster improved communication between the practice and its patients
  • Help patients to take more responsibility for their health
  • Provide practical support and help to implement change

The PPG Aims to;

  • Develop a partnership with patients.
  • Discover what a range of patients think about services and to establish their priorities.
  • Provide a platform to test and modify ideas and plans.
  • Be the link between the Practice and the local community
