What is the patient participation group?
Our practice has a PPG (Patient Participation Group) which provides a connection between the practice and patients, allowing a forum for open constructive discussion and analysis of service provision as well as offering an alternative perspective on many topics relevant to general practice.
The PPG hold regular meetings and also display information regarding the purpose and progress on the group at both surgeries, on the designated notice boards.
What does it involve?
PPG meetings are held at the surgery approximately every 12 weeks. The purpose of the meetings is to discuss issues affecting your practice and also to help the surgery deliver the best service it possibly can.
What else does the PPG do?
- Help formulate patient surveys according to areas of patient priorities (once a year).
- Help with organising patient health events.
- Occasionally attend locality PPG seminars.
All the above are not obligatory but even the smallest input is of great value.
