What is a PPG?  

A PPG is a group of patients, carers and GP practice staff who meet to discuss practice issues and patient experience to improve the services that the GP practice provides. These groups can meet face-to-face and/or online.  

What does a PPG do?

A PPG is a critical friend to the practice, giving feedback about GP services and changes that are made. PPGs can inspire positive change. For example, a PPG could give feedback to help staff make the appointments system work better. A PPG can also help provide information on what services are available to patients and it can organise health promotion events and social activities.

How does a PPG work?

PPGs can work in a number of different ways. Before the coronavirus pandemic, most groups would have regular meetings at the surgery, but some may now meet online. Some also involve a wider group of patients who do not usually attend meetings, using e-mail to communicate news and seek patient views. An effective PPG is patient-led and self-organising. Practice staff should help and support the PPG, and work in partnership with the group.

Once you have registered for this meeting you will receive an e-ticket with a zoom link.
