Patient Participation Group

The Aims of the Patient Participation Group

What is the role of the Patient Participation Group?

Patient participation refers to patients, such as you, who are taking an active interest in healthcare and how their Surgery is run.

It gives practice staff and patients a chance to discuss the Surgery, local health problems and services, and tries to think of ways to improve the way the Surgery can work.

What are the benefits of a Patient Participation Group?

  • Patients will have a better understanding of how the Surgery works.
  • There will be improved communication between patients and staff.
  • Patients will have a forum to suggest ideas and raise concerns.
  • Patients will be consulted about arrangements in the GP Surgery before decision are made.
  • Patients’ views will be represented in local health care.
  • Ideas of a wide range of people will be represented.
