What is the purpose of the Patient Participation Group (PPG)?

  • To ensure that patient perspectives are presented to the practice with a view to them being taken into account by the practice in its decision making regarding the quality & range of services it provides or commissions.

What is the structure of the Patient Participation Group (PPG)?

We currently operate a combined PPG representing patients from both of our sites. The PPG consists of patient representatives from their patient group with an elected chairperson & secretary.  The Chair person is Mr Glyn Jones (email address glynandwendy@btopenworld.com).  Meetings can be attended by anyone registered with the practice. However, if you would like to contribute to the agenda, you should let the practice know and contact Glyn via his email address for more information and dates of future meetings.

We are particularly looking for younger members and patients who normally attend the Moss Valley site as we are currently under-represented in these groups.

When are PPG meetings held?

We aim to hold 5 meetings per year and these are normally alternated between our two sites. You can access the notes (or agenda) for each meeting, together with any relevant documents discussed at the meetings by clicking on the links below.
