We understand how important it is for patients have their say at both a local and borough-wide level.
We support patient groups to be actively involved in discussions with their GP practices, be part of the decision making processes which affects their care and encourage PPGs and practice staff to work together so that patients are well informed and understand the complexities of primary care provision and how it affects them.
The Lambeth Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) also recognises the importance of patient involvement and communication and by working with the Lambeth PPG Network and PPGs they too are able to actively engage with and hear from patients.
The Network has three sub groups and welcomes the input from PPG members, patients and practices. Each group normally meets every four to six weeks to look at the work of the Network, making recommendations to the board and planning the support and development of PPGs in the borough.
