The Aims of the Patient Participation Group

We want to ensure patients, their families and carers are represented and heard from at all stages of their treatment.

Patient Participation Groups (PPGs) are generally made up of a group of volunteer patients, the practice manager or deputy and one or more of the GPs from a practice. PPGs meet on a regular basis to discuss the services on offer, and how improvements can be made for the benefit of patients and the practice.

The beauty of PPGs is that there is no set way in which they work - the aims and work of each group entirely depends on local needs - but they all have the aim of making sure that their practice puts the patient, and improving health, at the heart of everything it does.

We would like to know how we can improve our service to you and how you perceive our surgery and staff. 

To help us with this, we have a PPG so that you can have your say. We will ask the members of this representative group some questions from time to time, such as what you think about our opening times or the quality of the care or service you received.

If you are happy for us to contact you occasionally by email please complete the form below to open the sign-up form and complete all the fields.
