Patient Participation Group Awareness Week

Healthwatch Logo

 

 

12th June marks the start of PPG Awareness Week!

Come together to celebrate the work of our local Patient Participation Groups!

 

Patient Participation Group (PPG) is a group made up of:

– Practice patients aged 16 years and over

– Carers of registered patients

– Members of the GP Practice staff

 

What do PPGs do?

– Review patients’ surveys, such as the Family and Friends Test

– Listen to patients’ stories and views

– Explore ideas and suggestions on how to improve patients’ experiences in GP practices

– Discuss with GP practice staff an action plan for service improvements

– Monitor the implementation of the service improvement action plan

– Run small projects around patients’ education, health promotion, and improvements to the GP practice’s environment.
