Patient Participation Group
With the aim of ensuring an effective communication avenue for their patients, all General Medical Practices are required to support an active Patient Participation Group, or PPG. The role of the PPG is to represent the views and opinions of the patients, and to work with the Practice in delivering the best possible service to the patients.
If you are interested in joining the group please contact us via our secure online form
Since 2003 the Whiteparish PPG has been a valuable and supportive partner to the Practice. The WPPG meets formally four times a year to check progress and work on a variety of opportunities, and also organises public presentations and assists the Practice at clinics and other meetings.
One of our goals is to organize two public presentations on health topics each year, and the dates and topics will be communicated widely through local noticeboards and the Practice website closer to the exact dates.
The WPPG currently has six members, including one GP Partner and the Practice Manager, and as always, new members would be warmly welcomed - especially from our younger patient group. Please feel free to contact any of the current PPG members shown below if you would like to find out more about joining and helping your Patient Participation Group.
Some of the WPPG’s accomplishments include:
- Assisting annual flu clinics
- Organizing public presentations
- Access to hearing aid batteries at the Surgery
- Raising questions and comments to the Practic
The WPPG always welcomes feedback and suggestions from patients through the suggestion box in reception, the website, or directly to members on how current services may be improved or new services introduced.
