About the Patient Participation Group




We are looking for patients from all age groups and backgrounds to help us.

PPGs are groups of active volunteer patients that work in partnership with the practice.

This unique partnership between patients and their practices is essential to achieving high quality care.

Groups meet face to face at mutually agreed intervals. ‘Virtual PPGs’ now also exist operating alongside ‘real’ groups enabling a dialogue with the whole patient population through email, online surveys and social media.
