What is a Patient Participation Group?

A Patient Participation Group (PPG) is where a group of health professionals and patients can come together to address issues that effect health and health services in their local community.

Usually connected to a particular GP practice, patient forums provide a link between practice staff and their registered patients.

The agenda of any particular group will depend upon the local needs, interests and energies of the participants, but its key role is to:

  • Enable patients to have a say on how the practice operates
  • Provide feedback on new systems within the practice such as booking an appointment
  • Act as a sounding board for ideas Support the practice to provide a high quality of care and service delivery.

Patient Participation Group (PPG) Minutes and Meetings

PPG minutes are available upon request and can either be emailed, posted or picked up at the surgery. Please contact the Business Manager on 0115 963 2184.

Face to Face PPG meetings are usually held on a quarterly basis on the last Friday of the month.

The surgery also provides a Virtual Patient Participation Group (VPPG) for those population groups that find it difficult to meet in person during working hours.

The PPG and VPPG have Patient Participant Leads. They are happy to speak to you on an independent basis.
