Patient Participation Group

Our PPG was formed over 25 years ago. Historically, the group was set up as a charity to fund raise with the aim to provide a variety of additional equipment for patients.

We also set up a wheel-chair hire scheme for patients who could hire one as required. The latter continues to-day.
Working in partnership with our GPs and practice teams, our Patient Participation Group ensures that the patient’s perspective is at the heart of local provision so that services are of high quality and continuously improve. The Group also provides practical support in the surgery, fosters improved communication between the practice and its patients and helps patients to take more responsibility for their health. Our PPG also facilitates regular health education events, sometimes in conjunction with the three other local GP practices.

Representatives of our PPG meet face to face with representatives from the GPs and Practice Staff quarterly at the surgery. The meetings are at 12.30-1.30. We also have a ‘Virtual’ PPG which enables patients to get involved via email with PPG newsletters and minutes of PPG meetings to be shared electronically at

The PPG always welcomes new members. Please contact the PPG Secretary via Max Reed at
