The Patient Participation Groups (PPGs) are groups of patients linked with a GP practice. There are different forms of PPGs, some meet on a regular basis, some are virtual groups, and they all vary in size. PPGs can represent the patients at a practice and provide feedback on the services their practice offers, help the practice make improvements and promote health and improved quality of care.
To find out about your PPG and how to join the PPG at your practice you should check their website or contact the practice manager.
The National Association for Patient Participation (NAPP) provides guidance around getting involved and joining your local PPG. To find out more about joining your local PPG click here: NAPP
