Patient Participation Group
Patient participation is a unique partnership between patients, GPs and their practice which is essential to and results in high quality and responsive care.
Patient Participation Groups (PPGs) work in partnership with their practices to:
- Help patients to take more responsibility for their health.
- Contribute to the continuous improvement of services and quality of care
- Foster improved communication between the practice and its patient
- Pprovide practical support for the practice and help to implement change
The first PPGs were established around 1972 by GPs in England and Wales. Since then the PPG movement has grown rapidly. Experience shows that successful practices and effective PPGs go hand in hand. For more information on patient groups please visit: www.napp.org.uk
