Patient Participation Group

The Practice developed a Patient Participation Group in August 2011. The group meet five times a year to review patient services, attend education workshops and offer critical support to the practice from a patient perspective.

Profile of the Patient Participation Group

The aim is to have a diverse group of patients to help set priorities and shape the Practice in the future. The group meet in practice with the Duty Manager and practice Partner, there is an option to dial in via Zoom. In addition to the PPG attendees, patient participation is sought via the practice newsletter which goes out to over 1,200 patients.
