Many of our practices now have a Patient Participation Group (PPG). 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.
If you are interested in becoming a member of your PPG or in setting one up for your local GP practice please contact your local GP practice for further information.
The CCG actively encourages and supports GP practices in setting up PPGs - for more information please contact us or read the information below:
