Patient Participation Group

We are looking to recruit new members of our Patient Participation Group.

What is a Patient Participation Group?

The aim of the group is to provide an opportunity for two-way feedback between the practice and the patients, to work together to improve services and facilities for the patients of the practice.

We want to ensure that our patients are able to have their voices heard because your opinions matter to us.

What can a Patient Participation Group do?

•   Discuss constructive suggestions for improving the practice, and share concerns that could affect the wider practice population.

•   Organise health focused events with the practice, i.e. healthy eating awareness as an information event for all practice patients to attend.

•   Create a patient survey with practice staff, to get feedback about the practice from the rest of the patient population.

•   Design a newsletter for the practice, to provide regular updates to patients.

•   Assist the practice in making sure their website is ‘Patient Friendly’.

•   Engage with the local community via fundraising events and useful health information, to ensure the PPG is representative.

•   Invite health and voluntary professionals to PPG meetings, for PPG members to remain informed and updated about local opportunities for patients.

How can I join the group?

We want the group to be representative of the community we serve.  Therefore, a PPG is open to every patient on the GP practice list. All communities, groups, genders, ages, ethnicities, and disabilities representing our patient list are encouraged to join.
