PATIENT PARTICIPATION GROUP (PPG)
What is a Patient Participation Group (PPG)?
The surgery has an active Patients Participation Group (PPG). It is a direct link between you (the patient) and the medical services provided by the practice.
The group provide a forum for patients to contribute to the decision making and service development within the surgery.
What does the PPG do?
It will act on your behalf to:
- Contribute to the improvement of services
- Improve communication between the practice and patients
- Provide practice support for change
- Organise 'awareness' days for patients on specific problems, eg obesity, men's health, women's health, carers' support, etc.
What it is not:
- The meetings are not a forum for complaints, single issues or individual disagreements between you and the practice as there will be other procedures for supporting patients with these concerns.
- A burden to Practice staff
Your PPG Committee members are fellow patients and are listed below:
Jane Cunningham (Chair), Barbara Simpson, Kathryn Merrett, Anna Greenwood, Khadim Hussain, Saeedur Rehman
The PPG Committee shall meet not less than 4 times in any 12 month period.
PPG Members Meeting
- Membership shall be open and free to all patients and staff of the Practice
- PPG members meeting will be twice a year, which all patients are entitled to attend.
