Patient Participation Group

Patient Participation Group Aims are to:

  • act as a link between the practices & their patients, conveying and promoting patient views to the practices, and where possible providing information form the practices to the patient group
  • support the practices wherever possible as critical friends.                                         
    A critical friend being defined as someone who is encouraging and supportive, but who also provides honest and often candid feedback that may be uncomfortable or difficult to hear.
  • act as a representative group alongside others that can be called upon to influence the local provision of health

How does the PPG meet?

The group will aim to meet in person at least 4 times a year. The formal meetings are always attended by a member of the Practice team. More informal meetings of the patient representatives will be held as necessary.

We really appreciate the members of our patient panel who give up their time to represent the patient voice of the surgery. We are looking to be more representative so do please think about joining us. If you think you would like to be involved or have a suggestion, and are a current patient of either practice, please contact us

  • By asking reception staff to forward your details to the Links PPG
  • By email to [email protected] (please note information sent to this email address will be seen by other patients that are PPG members)
  • By clicking the link below ‘PPG Sign up form’ and completing the form (please note information added to this form will be sent to a mailbox which will be seen by other patients that are PPG members)

Please note this email address is not linked to The Practice and emails for the practice will not be passed on.

  • Via suggestion boxes in both surgery waiting rooms

We do have a few ground rules, namely

  • We want to work collaboratively, positively and in a supportive manner with the practices and each other
  • We acknowledge that the PPG is not a forum for complaints or grievances, but for ideas to resolve any issues
  • We agree that confidentiality must be maintained. To this end we ask all members to sign our Terms of Reference & Confidentiality Agreements.
