Patient Participation Groups
Most local GP practices have Patient Participation Groups (PPGs). A PPG is a group of patients interested in health and healthcare issues, who want to get involved with and support the running of their local GP Practice and wider Primary Care Network.
Most PPGs include members of practice staff and meet at regular intervals to decide ways of making a positive contribution to the services and facilities offered by the practice, to improve the community’s health and to make sure patient experience is as good as it can be.
Cheshire CCG co-ordinates a range of forums across the county to support the engagement of GP practices and their patient representatives in our work.
Contact your GP practice to find out more about its PPG.
