What is the structure of the Patient Participation Group (PPG)?

We currently operate a combined PPG representing patients from both of our sites. The PPG consists of patient representatives from their patient group with an elected chairperson & secretary. Meetings can be attended by anyone registered with the practice. However, if you would like to contribute to the agenda, you should let the practice know that you would like to join the group so we can add you to the mailing list.

We are particularly looking for younger members and patients who normally attend the Moss Valley site as we are currently under-represented in these groups.

When are PPG meetings held?

We aim to hold 5 meetings per year and these are normally alternated between our two sites. You can access the notes (or agenda) for each meeting, together with any relevant documents discussed at the meetings by click on the links below.
