Who are the PPG?
The PPG is open to all registered patients and to anyone who is a Carer of a registered patient. No training is required to become a member, just a genuine interest in taking positive action to help your practice by giving your constructive opinion and some time.
You can get involved in the work of the PPG in a number of ways. You can participate as much or as little as you are able or wish to.
Ideally the PPG will reflect the diversity of the registered patients including for example by age, gender, ethnicity and health issues.
