Patient Participation Group

The Aims of the Patient Participation Group

As a member of our patient participation group, we will contact you from time to time to find out what changes you would like to see at the practice.  We will ask questions about what you think of our services and the quality of care you have received.  This is your opportunity to have your say in the changes and decisions taken within the Pratice about the services we offer.  The PPG also:- 

  • Offer opinions in a constructive manner and to put forward ideas on behalf of other patients.
  • Improve the provision of health care.
  • Improve communication between surgery, patients and the wider community about matters concerning the surgery and health in general.
  • Provide assistance in development of new services.
  • Encourage a spirit of self help and support amongst patients to improve their health and social care.

Ground Rules

These are important as a point of reference for behaviour for when the group meets, and were agreed at the first couple of meetings. We agreed that the group should not be a forum for pursuing individual personal complaints or agendas, that patient confidentiality is of the utmost importance and that everyone on the PPG should be treated fairly, equally and with respect.

We are striving to have a mix of the following people:

  • Active volunteers – people with time and commitments to action decisions
  • Interested professionals – the doctors and administrative staff who work within and know the system and can be co-opted onto the group as required
  • Key supporters – people with influence within your locality, e.g. local councillors, community workers or business people who help raise the profile of the group, and improve the chances of your group finding financial or other forms of support
