Patient Participation Group

The Aims of the Patient Participation Group

We welcome ALL patients to our PPG meetings  

We would love to see some new faces at our next meeting.

The first ever Patient Participation Group was set up by a GP in 1972 and many general practices in England now have a PPG. Generally made up of a group of volunteer patients, the practice manager and one or more of the GPs from the practice. They meet on a regular basis to discuss the services on offer, and how improvements can be made for the benefit of patients and the practice.

The beauty of PPGs is that there is no set way in which they work - the aims and work of each group entirely depends on local needs - but they   aim to make sure that their practice puts the patient, and improving health, at the heart of everything it does. 

The Neaman Practice has been running a patient participation group for a few years now. We meet once every 3 months virutually via Teams.

At present there are approximately 20 people in the group although this varies from quarter to quarter. There is an open invitation for anyone to join the group although we have found it hard to recruit younger patients. We hope to encourage a greater uptake from under represented groups such as younger people, ethnic minority groups and mothers with young children.

Meetings last for an hour and minutes are taken which are available on the website. Each meeting is attended by patients, the GPs and Managers.
