Patient Participation Group (PPG)

Next Meeting

  • Thursday 14th September 2017
  • At Ainsdale Medical Centre - 6:30pm start
    Meeting Agenda

1/8/16 : Update

Our PPG is made up of approx 12-14 patient volunteers. We meet five times a year ( normally at 6:30pm) to discuss various issues around improving how the practice operates.

Our PPG is chaired by David Waugh.

Representatives of the group will be at the flu clinics on 29th September and 5th October to talk to patients and get their feedback on the surgery.

31/3/15: Read our report for 2014/15

We will soon be transitioning our on-line patient participation group into a forum that meets physically three or four times a year alongside the on-line discussion forum. If you would like to be involved in the group please get in touch with the Practice and tell the Receptionist you would like to speak to the Practice Manager about the PPG. Our objective is to make the group as representative as possible - 30% of our population is aged between 17 and 34 and yet they are not represented at all in our current group.  

2013/4 Patient Participation report - read our report on the work we have been doing with our Patient Reference Group including the results of the patient survey we carried out recently.

Patient Reference Groups (PRGs) are an effective way for patients and GP surgeries to work together to improve services and to promote health and improved quality of care.

You can contact David Waugh on to ask any questions you have about the group.
