Patient participation groups (PPGs) allow interested patients to be actively involved in the running of their practice. This not only helps them to understand the healthcare service, but lets them voice their opinions, and those of the wider patient community, on topics such as service provision and local community matters. Benefits may include the suggestion and introduction of new services and improvements to the practice. PPGs should not feel restricted to very local issues, however, but should feel free to comment on regional and national developments in healthcare provision as well.
Longshoot Medical Practice currently has a PPG comprising a small number of patients who meet on a 3 monthly basis.
