What is a Patient Participation Group and Why Join?
All English GP practices are required to form a representative patient participation group (PPG). We are supported and guided by the National Association for Patient Participation (NAPP).
PPGs aim to make the relationship between patients and their practices stronger and to assist them to play an even more valuable role at the heart of our communities.
There are many ways to give your input. You may be interested in helping us organise local health information events for patients; set up support groups for those with long term conditions or be part of the consultation process in local health issues that affect us all.
We are hosting an evening, which gives you the chance to join the PPG. Find out more information.
If you wish to join our friendly group please fill in our online registration form.
