What can we help you with today?

Patient Participation Group (PPG) image Patient Participation Group (PPG)

A Patient Participation Group (PPG) is generally used to describe a patient group based in a GP practice. It is led by patients but run in partnership with the GP practice to:

  • Give views as a patient on how services can be improved and receive feedback on those views
  • Help patients to be more informed and responsible for their own health
  • Build a positive working relationship with the practice
  • Meet other patients and share experiences
  • Support the practice to help patients to stay well
  • Help to improve communication between practice and patients

Each PPG is unique. It makes decisions on its own structure, priorities and work programme. As it acts as a bridge between patients and the GP practice, it is important that each PPG has a broad base of patient involvement and views. We try to make our PPG as representative of our practice population as possible, and encourage all patients to get involved. 

If you would like to join please email thecornersurgery.ppg@nhs.net or phone our reception team on 020 7274 4507. If you would like to raise something or have an idea for an initiative just get in touch! Please note this is not a space for personal medical complaints.
