Patient Participation Group

What is a Patient Participation Group?

A Patient Participation Group (PPG) is a group of people who are patients of the surgery and want to help it work as well as it can for patients, doctors and staff. The NHS requires every practice to have a PPG.

Our PPG actively looks to:

– Represent the views of all patients registered with Upton Surgery by acting as a way of communication between patients and the practice staff

– Act as a ‘sounding board’ for the Practice to ensure patients’ needs are considered in the development of current and new Practice processes, procedures and systems

– Work with the Practice to encourage, support and promote good health education, health promotion, health care services and practice

– Assist the Practice to address patient concerns about services, processes and systems

– Review and comment upon local and national issues affecting the practice and its patients

The practice has an active PPG who act as advisors to the practice clinicians and management on issues concerning the efficient provision of service.
