West Cheshire Patient Participation Groups (PPGs)
Many local GP practices have Patient Participation Groups (PPGs). A PPG is a group of patients interested in health and healthcare issues, who want to get involved with and support the running of their local GP Practice.
Most PPGs include members of practice staff and meet at regular intervals to decide ways of making a positive contribution to the services and facilities offered by the practice, to improve the community’s health and to make sure the patient experience is as good as it can be.
Contact your GP practice to find out more about its Patient Participation Group.
