Thank you for expressing an interest in the Group. Below is some information that will hopefully give you a brief insight into its function.
What is the Patient Participation Group?
The PPG is a group of patients joining together in a voluntary capacity to enhance the Practice by working alongside us and representing the patients of this Practice.
What does it involve?
This Group acts as a forum where any issues affecting the Practice or constructive ideas or comments can be raised and discussed between members of the Group and the Surgery.
The Group also participates in the construction of Patient Surveys and assessment of the results, giving feedback and looking at possible ways of improving the service we provide to our patients.
Members attend Group meetings approximately every 6 – 8 weeks.
Occasionally the nominated Chairperson should attend National PPG Seminars, for which mileage can be claimed.
Opportunities exist to assist in the production of the Practice Newsletter.
Who can become a member?
Generally anyone who is a patient at this Practice. However, the Practice does have the right to refuse an individual if it considers it is in the best interest of the individual or the Practice.
This is available from the Practice Manager and staff of the Surgery. Advice and support is also available from PALS if required.
Virtual Practice Group
An alternative to the PPG would be to join our virtual group, with whose members we communicate via e-mail, and would contact occasionally for input on ideas our Group have put forward or to complete patient surveys.
What to do next?
If you would like to join either our PPG or Virtual Group the application forms are available to download here. Alternatively, please contact the Practice Manager for more information on tel: 01283 760595 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
