Patient Participation Group

This surgery has an active Patient Participation Group (PPG). To express your interest please contact the practice manager or assistant manager.

At its simplest, patient participation refers to patients who wish to take a more active interest in developing local healthcare services. Most PPGs operate within GP surgeries or health centres. We are a newly established group who are beginning to make progress as we establish areas of concern for patients and the areas we can influence.

The idea is for patients and staff to work together to share ideas to help patients to take more responsibility for their own health and help to improve the services offered at the surgery. It gives patients a say in how services are planned, developed and evaluated, by developing a good working relationship with the practice staff and GPs. The PPG will seek to improve communication through the practice website along with the use of notice boards and direct communication within the surgery.
