Patient Participation Group

The Aims of the Patient Participation Group

Since April 2016, it has been a contractual requirement for all English practices to form a patient participation group (PPG) during the year ahead and to make reasonable efforts for this to be representative of the practice population. Click here for more info

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 are have the aim of making sure that their practice puts the patient, and improving health, at the heart of everything it does.

Our Patient Participation Group is now up and running and on the way to being well established.  If you would like further information please contact Tracy Stephens at the surgery on 01782 917840.

Getting Your View

The group would like to contact patients on occasion by email and/or text so that they can obtain the views of the widest group of patients possible. We would like to obtain your email address and mobile phone number to do this. Please complete the Patient Contact Form to provide your consent for this.

PPG News

Over the last 12 months The Patient Participation Group have held a coffee morning to raise money for Donna Louise Trust (£120).  Educational meetings have been held for Body Donation, First Aid at Home and Dementia/Alzheimers.  These meetings were open to patients within the practice.

Meetings are held every 6 weeks and all patients are invited to come along.  Should you wish to be part of our PPG group, please contact the surgery in the first instance.

If you have any suggestions or ideas for future educational meetings or raising money for charity please contact Tracy Stephens at the surgery on 01782 917840 who will pass your details on to the Chairperson of the PPG.
