What is a Patient Participation Group?
A Patient Participation Group, or PPG for short, is a group of patients who work together with their local healthcare providers to improve the health services available to them. PPGs are typically made up of volunteers who are registered at a specific GP practice or healthcare centre and meet regularly to discuss healthcare issues and suggest ways to improve the services provided.
PPGs act as a voice for patients, providing feedback and suggestions to healthcare providers on how they can improve the services they offer. They also help to raise awareness of health issues within the local community and encourage patients to take an active role in their own health and wellbeing. PPGs may also organise events and campaigns to promote healthy living and support those with particular health needs.
Overall, PPGs play an important role in ensuring that healthcare services are tailored to the needs of patients and provide a valuable opportunity for patients to have a say in how their local health services are run.
East Lindsey Primary Care Network Patient Participation Group (PPG)
We are looking to create a Patient Participation Group for the East Lindsey PCN which includes patients that are keen to support and influence our future health services. We believe that patients are at the heart of all we do and we want to enable patients to have an active part in shaping and developing our patient-centred health services.
How do I join a Patient Participation Group?
We are looking to involve as many patients in the group as possible, from across all Our Practices on a voluntary basis so that we can shape and develop the services that we deliver to you. We are looking for willing volunteers that are happy to be contacted periodically to get their views and maybe attend an occasional meeting.
To participate in our future meeting please complete the online registration form below.
