What is a Patient Participation Group?
A PPG is made up of patients and practice staff who communicate at regular intervals to consider ways of making a positive contribution to the services and facilities offered by their practice to patients.
What is the purpose of a Patient Participation Group?
- Patient participation is about patients and the Practice working together to: -
- Improve communication between GPs, practice staff and patients.
- Enable patients to look after their own health, with the support of their GP and practice staff.
- Discuss topics of mutual interest to the Practice and our patients.
- Encourage improvement within the Practice.
- Increase patient satisfaction with the service they receive.
What is it NOT?
Patient participation is not a vehicle for individuals to voice personal interests, resolve personal issues or to get additional personal medical service. Rather, it aims to bring about positive change to the benefit of all patients and practice staff.
We aim to gather patients from as broad a spectrum as possible to get a truly representative sample. We need young people, workers, retirees, people with long term conditions and people from non-British ethnic groups.
