Join our (PPG) Patient Participation group or our (PRG) Patient Reference Group


Patient Participation Group (PPG) & Patient Reference Group (PRG)


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.


We are looking to recruit more people to our patient group. Would you like to join?

You can become a member by:

  • Attending the meetings - They are currently held monthly on Tuesdays  alternating between Churchill and Chingway
  • Joining our new ‘virtual patient participation group’ on our website.   


The outcomes of the meetings both real and virtual will be available on our website.

You can sign up to the virtual group on our website.  Please see menu or click Here to  "Sign Up For Our Patient Group"


How will I get feedback from the Group?

  • Information will be available in the waiting room at the surgery.
  • Information will be available on the practice website and in the newsletter
  • If you provide us with your email address and mobile telephone number we will add you to our contact list and we will contact you by email or SMS message


This is your opportunity to have your ideas heard and to influence how improve services at Churchill Healthcare.



Our activities to date include:


  • Regular meetings and email reports
  • A Newsletter issued 3 times per year
  • Patient information folders
  • Addressed issues around the number of appointments, reducing missed appointments, promoting telephone consultations and text reminders
