Patient Participation Group

What is a patient participation group?

A patient participation group (PPG) is a group of patients and GP practice staff who meet regularly and work together to improve the quality of care and outcomes for patients. PPGs can bring significant benefits to a GP practice: improving services, allowing resources to be used more efficiently and, most importantly, developing mutually supportive networks (outside the GP or nurse appointment). Groups help the practice to develop services that reflect what patients need and want.

PPGs become advocates for the practice and the services it provides. A thriving PPG is increasingly viewed as an indicator of a high-quality caring practice.

When working well PPGs strengthen the relationship between patients and practice staff which is critical to the provision of modern, high quality general practice.

Your Virtual Patient Group

Virtual PPGs are also now developing based on email networks and social media to enable the group to reach out to the wider diverse population. This will ensure engagement with all sections of the population including those from minority communities and those that are seldom heard.

Our Patient Participation Group is encouraging patients to give their views about how the practice is doing. They would like to be able to ask the opinions of as many patients as possible and are asking if people would like to provide their email addresses so that they can contact you by email every now and again to ask you a question or two.
