What is a PPG?
A PPG or Patient Participation Group is a group of patients, carers and GP practice staff who meet to discuss practice issues and patient experiences in order to help improve the healthcare services available to patients. Including liasing with other with other community health care workers, Health Authorities and other persons or organisations concerned with health care.
Central Surgery PPG are not just a conduit between patients and surgery. But are also an active group that wants to ensure a smooth patient journey for both parties. To this end, Central Surgery have asked the PPG to assist in the on-going development of the surgery, and to privde a means for patients to become more involved, sharing ideas and make suggestions about the healthcare services they receive and how they can be improved.
- To see that all parties are kept up to date with any changes within the surgery, and to ensure that any relevant information is passed on as quickly and accurately as possible.
- To represent patient views and improve communication between patients and the surgery.
- To assist the practice on the education needs of the patient community in regard to preventative medicine, healthy lifestyle choices, appropriate use of healthcare services and any other areas as to improve the health of the patient community and the efficient use of medical resources.
- To bring to the attention of the surgery, any new or existing services that could be of benefit to the patients, but that is not currently being offered.
- To contribute to the practice development process and comment upon any resulting action plans.
