Patient Participation Group (PPG)
What is a Patient Participation Group (PPG)?
From April 2016, it has been a contractual requirement for all English practices to form a patient participation group (PPG) during the year ahead and to make reasonable efforts for this to be representative of the practice population.
The first Patient Participation Group was set up by a GP in 1972 and many general practices in England now have a PPG. Generally made up of a group of volunteer patients, the practice manager and one or more of the GPs from the practice, they meet on a regular basis to discuss the services on offer, and how improvements can be made for the benefit of patients and the practice.
The aims and work of each PPG entirely depend on local needs - but they have the aim of making sure that their practice puts the patient, and improving health, at the heart of everything it does.
