What is a Patient Participation Group (PPG)?
A patient participation group is a selection of patients and practice staff who meet at regular intervals to decide ways of making a positive contribution to the services and facilities offered by the practice to the patients.

What is the purpose of Patient Participation Groups?
To give practice staff and patients the opportunity to discuss topics of mutual interest in their Practice.
To provide the means for patients to make positive suggestions about the Practice and their own healthcare.
To encourage health education activities within the Practice.
To develop self-help projects to meet the needs of fellow patients.
To act as a representative group that can be called upon to influence the local provision of Health and Social Care.
To involve further patients from the wider population.
It is hoped that GP services can be developed and improved within the limitations of resources available, by GP’s, staff and patients working and co-operating with each other.
