Patient Participation Group - New members

New members are always welcome

Currently our PPG has 12 volunteer members. We attempt to reflect our local population with members of different genders, ethnicities, ages, abilities, experience and interests; equality is important to us. We are keen to recruit new members, particularly those from under-represented groups: young people (over 16); and those of an ethnic minority. Membership is open to all registered patients and their carers.  One of our Doctors and our Practice Manager are centrally involved in all PPG activities; other medical professionals and Practice staff provide ideas, input, and responses. We are a cohesive team.

By being a member of the PPG you could benefit by:

  • Making a valued contribution to and involvement in our local community;
  • Participation in shared decision making;
  • Taking the opportunity to use and improve inter-personal and other skills;
  • Through our projects, encouraging fellow patients towards healthy life choices;
  • Gaining useful experience for those aiming for a career in health or social care.

If you think you may be interested please enquire at reception.
