Patient Participation Group (PPG)
Our PPG was formed in September 2011 and is an independent body which acts as an interface between the patients and the Practice. In addition to its members, two of the GP Partners, the Practice Manager and Medical Secretary form part of the group.
- Assist the practice to serve the community in the most effective way
- Encourage a greater commitment to community health
- Have an increased awareness to patients' needs
- Increase knowledge of local services
- Improve the patient experience
Join the PPG
The PPG is drawn from across our patient list. New members are always welcome, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Confidentiality of course prevents the PPG's involvement with issues that relate to specific patients. These are best discussed with your GP or the Practice Manager.
The PPG committee communicates with our patients via this website, quarterly newsletter and the information screen in the waiting room.
Please contact the PPG using the email address above if you have any comments or issues which you think the PPG should consider.
Minutes of PPG meetings
Records are kept of the content and actions arising from our quarterly meetings. These are available to all patients by contacting SAMC.
