Patient Participation Group (PPG)

Would you like to join our Patient Participation Group?

It is all voluntary and every and each contribution is appreciated and valued.
Choose the level and degree of involvement that suits you best, whether as a member of the Group or just helping out once in a while.

The Patient Participation Group should be developed in the most appropriate way to ensure regular engagement with a representative sample of the practice population, and it should have a structure that allows it to reach the broadest cross section of the patient population.

The role of the PPG includes:

  • Being a critical friend to the practice;
  • Advising the practice on the patient perspective and providing insight into the responsiveness and quality of services;
  • Encouraging patients to take greater responsibility for their own and their family’s health;
  • Carrying out research into the views of those who use the practice;
  • Organising health promotion events and improving health literacy;
  • Regular communication with the patient population.
