Your patient participation group

Practice patient participation group

Our Patient Participation Group (PPG) provides a volunteer-run communications link between the health centre and the patient community

  • To improve provision for our patients
  • To promote health and wellbeing in the community

Activities include

  • Publicise the services available to patients
    By holding workshops with existing groups and elsewhere in the village
    By other methods such as digital media, leaflets, and posters
  • Promote national and local health campaigns
  • Promote health and wellbeing in the community
  • Conduct targeted surveys of patients, and work with the health centre on implementing improvements
  • Support the health centre with non-medical activities
  • Share good practice through networking with the PPG network in Buckinghamshire.

What this is not
It is not a forum to discuss personal complaints but does welcome constructive criticism and ideas. Personal complaints should be dealt with through complaints process.

We would like our patients to be involved in shaping and improving the services we offer.

We use feedback from patients to improve our service, including from the friends and family test and other patient surveys, see under

We share and discuss this information with our patient participation group and consider ways we can improve.  For practice changes see under

Local public consultations, surveys and engagement activities

A patient participation group can also influence wider consultations occurring in the local area which go beyond the practice. A collective opinion from a patient participation group can help influence local changes. You can also have your say individually.
