Patient Participation Group - Aims and Objectives



The main aim of a PPG is for patients to take an active part in trying to improve the service and experience in their own surgery.


The main purpose of the group is:


  • To obtain on-going input from patients on the quality and range of services provided by the practice and the wider health service.


  • To involve patients in the development of potential new services.


  • To work in partnership with the practice to influence the design, shape and provision of health services in the local community.


  • To review survey results with the practice to determine and agree possible changes and/or improvements to services.


The group will aim to meet four times a year, early evening, at the practice for  1.5 – 2 hours.  The Patient Participation Group has met formally several times, however, one of their main objectives is to still increase the number of patients attending from a broad range of ages and experience in order to reflect a truly representative patient base within the group.


In order to truly embrace the concept of the group being run by the patients, the Terms of Reference for the PPG will be created by the patients over the coming months.  As soon as these have been agreed, they will be published on this site for all to see and comment upon.
