Patient Participation Group

Patients have a key role to play in both supporting the development of general practice and in ensuring the sustainability of the NHS as a whole. A way of achieving this is includes strengthening patients’ input into the organisation and delivery of their general practice services through the development of Patient Reference Groups.

We are pleased that we have a very mixed and diverse board of patients on our PPG. We have selected patients that continue to use our service and represent different age, health and sexuality groups. Our PPG have different values and have close links with the community. The aim of the group is to give patients, clinician’s and staff a chance to share positive, realistic ideas for improvement’s at the practice. It could lead to involvement such as:

  • Promoting health in adults.
  • Promoting health in children.
  • Seasonal health such as the flu campaign.
  • Liaising with citizens advise.
  • Being a contact for patient suggestions.

The list is not exhaustive and is still open to development. From the volunteers, a representative number of patients will be chosen to join the group and will meet 2 or 3 times a year. This group is not a forum for complaints. Members will have to take a balanced view of needs and it does not give any preferential entitlement at the practice.

All registered patients are able to join our Patient Participation Group. People of all genders, ages, ethnicities, and those with health conditions and disabilities are encouraged to join.
