Patient Participation Group
What is a Patient Participation Group?
A Patient Participation Group (PPG) is where a group of health professionals and patients can come together to address issues that effect health and health services in their local community.
Usually connected to a particular GP practice, patient forums provide a link between practice staff and their registered patients.
The agenda of any particular group will depend upon the local needs, interests and energies of the participants, but its key role is to:
- Enable patients to have a say on how the practice operates.
- Provide feedback on new systems within the practice, such as booking an appointment.
- Act as a sounding board for ideas and support the practice to provide a high quality of care and service delivery.
We want to ensure that the views of patients are fed into the practice regarding the services they deliver and any changes or new services that are being considered.
To do this we are compiling a contact list of email addresses, so that we can contact you by email every now and again to ask you a question or two.
