A Patient Participation Group (PPG) is a group of patients, carers and practice staff who meet to discuss practice issues and patient experience to help improve the service. The role of the PPG includes: being a critical friend to the practice, advising the practice on the patient perspective and providing insight into the responsiveness and quality of services, encouraging patients to take greater responsibility for their own and their family’s health, carrying out research into the views of those who use the practice, organising health promotion events and improving health literacy and regular communication with the patient population.
