A Patient Participation Group (PPG) is a group of patients from a GP practice, working in partnership with the practice to improve services. The PPG brings the patient’s perspective to discussions and decisions and acts as a bridge between all patients and the practice to ensure that patient voices are heard about issues that matter most to them.
Each PPG is unique and PPG members, along with practice staff, will determine their exact objectives. In general, PPGs seek patient feedback on the practice and improvements that can be made, hold health awareness and information events and activities, provide support to individual patients, conduct patient research and support the practice in building relationships with other local bodies.
