Why have a Patient Participation Group?
From April 2016, it has been a contractual requirement for all English practices to form a patient participation group (PPG) during the year ahead and to make reasonable efforts for this to be representative of the practice population.
The group’s primary role is to champion patient perception. It acts within the following framework:
Can You Help? - The Respite Association
Take the quick (very quick!) poll from Healthwatch Lincolnshire - What would encourage you to share your views after visiting your GP?
What is a PPG?
Patient participation is a unique partnership between patients, GPs and their practice which is essential to and results in high quality and responsive care.
