What is a Patient Participation Group? (PPG)

A Patient Participation Group (PPG) is a group of volunteer patients and practice staff who engage and raise the topics of discussion which the patients would like them to be.

Patient participation IS

Patient participation is NOT:

Did you know?

We are developing a new Patient Participation Group (PPG) with our Primary Care Network practice colleagues at Berrycroft Community Health Centre, Whitehill Surgery and Fairford Leys Surgery, all of which form part of Aylesbury Central Primary Care Network (PCN).

Why are we doing this?

We believe that patients are at the heart of all we do and establishing an Aylesbury Central Primary Care Network PPG will enable patients to have an active part in shaping and developing our patient-centred health services.

We want to create a patient group that is representative of all of our patients in the geographical area we cover and with a bigger voice to help us to design future service delivery. We want to hear your great ideas!

Each practice has small groups of patients who support their PPG but more people working together for improved outcomes will hopefully support better engagement.
