Patient Participation Group

The Patient Participation Group (PPG) is a group of 20 volunteers working with our Practice to improve the services to patients and to provide the patients' perspective on many areas.

All GP Practices have PPGs working in a variety of ways depending on local circumstances.

We have PPG meetings to discuss issues within our Practice ensuring we provide the best service we can. If meetings are difficult to arrange then group email communication works too.

The aim is to help patients get the best service from their Practice and, just as importantly, for the Practice to respond to patients' ideas and needs.  

We are actively recruiting members for this group representing all areas of our practice population in terms of gender, age (adults only) and ethnic background.  However, there is a waiting list for those areas over represented.

If you are interested in joining our Patient Participation Group then please contact Peter Hicks at St Ann Street Surgery on 01722 342 000.
