Patient Participation Group (PPG)
The Patient Participation Group consists of a group of patients who try to make a positive contribution to the services offered to patients at the surgery. The PPG meets monthly; every other month it is joined by representatives of the Practice staff.
The objectives of the PPG are:
- To form a two-way communication bridge between patients and the practice.
- To contact patients for their views and provide regular feed back to the practice.
- To highlight any services that could be improved.
- To promote health events and awareness days. This is done with posters, leaflets and information packs displayed on the Patients' Notice Board and tables throughout the waiting areas of the surgery.
- To influence the provision of local Health and Social care.
For more information, please look at the notice boards. We try to keep them up to date as far as health awareness days are concerned. You can also pick up a leaflet about the PPG at the reception desk.
The Patient Participation Group is affiliated to the National Association for Patient Participation (NAPP) and is governed by the rules of that registered charity.
