Patient Participation Group
A Patient Participation Group Definition:
A Patient Participation Group (PPG) is a group of volunteer patients, carers and GP practice staff who meet to discuss practice issues and patient experience to improve the service.
If you would like:
- To give patients and practice staff the opportunity to meet and discuss topics of mutual interest.
- To provide a means for patients to become more involved and make suggestions about the healthcare services they receive.
- To explore issues from patient complaints and patient surveys, contribute to actions plans and help monitor improvements.
- To contribute feedback to the practice on National Patient Survey results and Friends & Family Test feedback to propose developments or change.
- To support health awareness and patient education.

We aim to build a Patient Forum which includes patients from as broad a spectrum as possible to get a truly representative sample. We need young people, workers, retirees, people with long term conditions and people from non-British ethnic groups.
