Patient representatives (PPG) will discuss issues affecting the practice, and help the surgery to deliver the best service it can, contributing to practice decision-making and will consult on service development and provision;

In practice, PPGs can play a number of roles, including:

  • Advising the practice on the patient perspective
  • Organising health promotion events
  • Communicating with the wider patient body
  • Running volunteer services and support groups to meet local needs
  • Carrying out research into the views of those who use the practice (and their carers)
  • Influencing the practice or the wider NHS to improve commissioning
  • Fundraising to improve the services provided by the practice

If you would like to apply to join the PPG or would like further information then please call reception who will pass your contact details on to our Patient Liaison Manager.
