What is the Patient Participation Group and the Patient Reference Group?
The Patient Participation Group is comprised of patients of the surgery who work together with the staff and doctors to help them:
- to provide a means for patients to make positive suggestions about the practice and specific medical conditions as an ‘expert’ or experienced patient
- to encourage health education activities within the practice
- to develop self-help projects to meet the needs of fellow patients
- act as a representative group that can be called upon to influence the local provision of health and social care
- to involve further patients from the wider population (see below)
The Patient Reference Group is comprised of people willing to be contacted a few times per year via email but not necessarily attend face to face meetings.
Who can become a member?
Generally anyone who is a patient within the Practice. However the Practice does have a right to refuse an individual if it considers it is in the best interest of the individual or the Practice.
