Patient Participation Groups (PPGs)
What is a Patient Participation Group?
Patient Participation Groups (PPGs) are representatives of the practice population, (including carers of registered patients) who meet with the practice and provide patient experience and feedback. These groups generally meet with the practice team several times a year.
PPGs can play a number of roles, including:
Advising the practice on the patient perspective
Organising health promotion events
Communicating with the wider patient body
Running volunteer services and support groups to meet local needs
Carrying out research into the views of those who use the practice (and their carers)
Influencing the practice or the wider NHS to improve commissioning
Fundraising to improve the services provided by the practice
Each of our practices within Vida Healthcare has a Patient Participation Group which you can get involved with and is completely free, however you must be a patient at that site to be elligible. If you wish to join one of our PPGs then please use the contact form below, a member of the PPG committee will be in touch with you soon.
For more information or to sign up, please pass your details to a member of reception and they will pass these to the PPG
