Patient Participation Groups (PPGs) are practice-based groups that create a partnership between patients and the GP practice, so they can work together to improve services provided by the practice.

PPG meetings are usually chaired by a patient and are supported by GP practice staff, however they can also be chaired by practice managers, GPs and practice nurses. Some practices operate a 'virtual' PPG, where patients are contacted via email.

Does my practice have a PPG?

You can contact your GP practice directly to find out if it has a PPG and how you can get involved. There may also be information on your practice's website.
