The Aims of the Patient Participation Group
The aim of the PPG is to work with their practice to provide practical support, to help patients take more responsibility for their own health and to provide strategic input and advice. PPGs are based on cooperation between the practice staff and patients.
A common criticism of many PPGs is that they are not representative of the practice population. It is always going to be difficult to get a group that exactly reflects the demographics of our practice, and volunteer roles tend to attract those that have a certain level of confidence and free time, and have flexibility about working and earning money.
However, a PPG is there to make sure that the patient voice is listened to and not necessarily always to be the voice itself. Therefore if you wish to volunteer please contact the Patient Liaison Officer Joshua Cobbson on 0208 888 1736 or complete the online form or one at reception.
In addition to holding meetings and discussing developments in respects to the surgery and its services, the PPG also organises daily activities. For more information regarding these activities, please contact Dorothy on 0208 888 7530, alternatively you can email her on email@example.com.
We hope to broaden our PPG over the coming months and recruit additional patients to the group. It is expected that the PPG will become more visible and assist the practice with new initiatives and ideas.
Please feel free to share any comments or suggestions you may have with us. These can be forwarded to the Practice Manager and will then be discussed with the PPG where appropriate.
We shall endeavour to answer or put into practice your suggestions. If this is not possible, we shall respond to you and provide a reason.
We look forward to hearing from you.
Patient Participation Group.
If you have any questions or need more information, please see the group’s notice board on the wall as you enter the surgery, or contact Dorothy on 020 8888 7530, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
These calls are monitored, so you will be asked a couple of questions before being put through to Dorothy.

A quality survey has been conducted and discussed with the PPG and the clinical and practice staff and an action plan developed to address the issues raised.
