Patient Participation Group

Our practice has an active PPG membership of currently 14 patients. We have both a PPG chair and Vice chair who were voted in by the PPG group members. As part of her role the practice care coordinator works closely with the group who meet quarterly at the practice or virtually if members cannot attend.
