Get involved

Your GP practice Patient Participation Group (PPG)

How can I get involved?

There are many ways that you can get involved and have your say about health services in primary care. The first step would be to join you GP practice Patient Participation Group (PPG).

 

Why should I attend my GP Practice PPG?

Attending your GP practice PPG means you can work with your GP and Practice Manager to deal with issues that affect you, other local people and your GP surgery.

Your local group is based in your GP practice and meets two to three times a year to discuss issues and concerns that affect people using the surgery. The group will prepare agendas and activities reflecting local needs and concerns.

 

How can I join my local PPG?

GP practices are always looking for patients who would like to get involved. If you are interested in joining a group, ask at your GP practice.
