Patient Participation Group

Our Patient Participation Group (PPG)

The overall aim of our group [PPG] is to develop a positive and constructive relationship between patients, the Practice and the community it serves, ensuring the practice remains accountable and responsive to all its patients needs. 

Our group is affiliated to The National Association for Patient Participation which issues periodic bulletins and newsletters. These can be accessed at www.napp.org.uk.
