What is the role of the Patient Participation Group (PPG)?
At its simplest, patients participation refers to patients such as you who are taking an active interest in healthcare. It gives you a say in how services are planned, developed and evaluated, by developing a good working relationship with the practice staff and GP's.
We will carry out surveys seeking your opinion on various matters and by contributing to this you will help your GP's to provide an accessible and responsive service and you will be smongst the first to hear about news and updates.
