Patient Participation Group

A PPG is a partnership between the Surgery and the patients enabling good communication between them to improve the quality of the service that is provided.

Our PPG is comprised of patient volunteers who are essentially “Area Representatives” for their Village or locality. They are supported by the Doctors and Practice Manager  who meet with them bi monthly and discuss healthcare issues, both national and local, large and small so that the members can then relay points back to their community through local networks.

Purpose of the PPG

To enable the patients to have a voice in the provision of health-care in their area

To give both staff and patients the chance to discuss health topics of interest.

Patients can give constructive feedback, requests and suggestions.


The Group meets alternative months in the Group Room at the Primary Care Centre.
