About the Patient Participation Group

 

BACK TO MAIN INDEX

 

The purpose of the newly constituted PPG) will be mainly built around patient education and how patients can be purposely involved in working with the doctors  and other medical and practice staff to share ideas and help to shape the planning and development of new and existing services.

We need your questions, ideas and suggestions!

More and more, the government and the CCGs are expecting to see evidence of patient involvement around all aspects of health care. We will aim to involve a broad range of patients from the practice to make it as inclusive as possible.

Virtual Patient Group

We realise that many patients are unable to attend meetings due to pressure from work or family commitments but may want to have a say in what we do. We need and value the input from a wide range of patients especially the ones who are too busy to attend. Why not join our “virtual” community? We can keep in touch by email and you can play a very important role in our PPG. As a member of the Virtual Patient Group we will send you e-mail messages asking for your opinion on a range of topics. You decide how often and when you would like to answer. Get involved from the comfort of your own home.

 

Patient Participation Group

We have an established Patient Participation Group (PPG) and are now looking to recruit new members to ensure a representative group.

The PPG aims to act as the ‘voice of patients’, reflecting local views and opinions and thereby having a say in changes and decisions taken within the Practice.

The practice can also use the PPG as a ‘sounding board’ for new ideas they may wish to try.

  • Do you have something important to say?
  • Do you have ideas on how to improve your local practice?
  • Could you spare a little time to attend daytime meetings (6 times a year)?

If you would like more information about the group, or would like to get involved, please ask at Reception.

We need young people, workers, retirees, people with long term conditions and people from non-British ethnic groups.
