Patient Participation Group Awareness Week:
1st - 6th June 2015
What are Patient Participation Groups?
“We are patients just like you”
PPGs are groups of active volunteer patients that work in partnership with practice staff and GPs.
Groups meet face to face with practice staff at mutually agreed intervals.
Working in partnership with GPs and practice teams, Patient Participation Groups provide practical support in the surgery, assist improved communication between the practice and its patients and put forward suggestions to help improve the patient care the surgery provides to patients.
Our PPG presently has 12 members, 5 female, 7 male ages ranging from 55 – 74 years of age.
We are looking to recruit some younger patients to our PPG Group. If this is of interest to you please ask at the reception desk for an application form or visit our apply via the website on the Patient Group listed underneath 'Have your say' on the home page.
All our surgeries have easy access and comply fully with the Disabilty Discrimination Act.
