Patient Participation Groups

All GP practices should have a Patient Participation Group (PPG) whose purpose is to make the relationship between the GP practice and their patients stronger.

You can do this by representing other patient’s views on services and gaining a better understanding of how your GP practice operates.  If you would like to know more about your particular GP practice’s PPG and how to become a member, contact them.
