PATIENT PARTICIPATION GROUP (PPG)

What is a Patient Participation Group (PPG)?

The surgery has an active Patients Participation Group (PPG). It is a direct link between you (the patient) and the medical services provided by the practice.

The group provide a forum for patients to contribute to the decision making and service development within the surgery.  

What does the PPG do?

It will act on your behalf to:

  • Contribute to the improvement of services
  • Improve communication between the practice and patients
  • Provide practice support for change
  • Organise 'awareness' days for patients on specific problems, eg obesity, men's health, women's health, carers' support, etc.

What it is not:

  • The meetings are not a forum for complaints, single issues or individual disagreements between you and the practice as there will be other procedures for supporting patients with these concerns.
  • A Doctor's fan club
  • A burden to Practice staff

PPG Committee

Your PPG Committee members are fellow patients and are listed below:

Jane Cunningham (Chair), Barbara Simpson, Kathryn Merrett, Anna Greenwood, Khadim Hussain, Saeedur Rehman

The PPG Committee shall meet not less than 4 times in any 12 month period.
