Patient Participation Groups (PPGs)

Updated on 31 August 2017

Many of our practices now have a Patient Participation Group (PPG). A PPG is a group of patients interested in health and healthcare issues, who want to get involved with and support the running of their local GP Practice.

We regularly attend local PPGs across the Vale of York patch and listen to feedback from patient representatives. It is a great way to find out the issues that may arise in primary care, the pressures on GP practices as well as sharing positive news and feedback.  

If you are interested in becoming a member of your PPG or in setting one up for your local GP practice please contact your local practice for further information.

The CCG is actively encouraging and supporting practices'  PPGs - for more information please contact us.
