Patient Participation Group (PPG)

Aims of a PPG

  • To encourage a positive relationship between the patients and the practice staff, both medical and administrative
  • To have a voice for the patient in the practice
  • To be realistic about what you can achieve and to look for small changes that can make a real difference
  • To work constructively and positively to help identify solutions and to work in partnership with the practice and other local organisations
  • Produce newsletters for practice patients per annum which will contain appropriate information on local or national health matters
  • Carrying out research to find out what matters to patients and discussing the findings with the practice
