Patient Group

A patient participation group or PPG is a small group of patients who are registered with an individual GP practice who represent the patient voice for that practice. PPGs are led by GP practices to engage with their patients to improve their services and to gain their input on key decisions regarding the practice.

Patient involvement in health is currently a high priority in the NHS. With the transition to GP commissioning this will become more and more important to practices.

Each PPG is unique: evolving to meet local needs. PPG works with the practice to:

  • Offer patient perspective on services provided by the practice
  • Contribute to the continuous improvement of services
  • Foster improved communication between the practice and its patients
  • Help patients to take more responsibility for their health
  • Provide practical support and help to implement change

If you are interested in taking part in a PPG ask at Reception or complete the online form.  Here at Silton Surgery we send out questionnaires to participants via email.
