Patient Participation Group

We would like to know how we can improve our service to you and how you perceive our surgery and staff.

To help us with this, our Patient Participation Group (PPG) is a group of 20 volunteers who provide a route for patients to advise and inform the Practice on what matters to patients.

The PPG is consulted on key issues affecting the Practice. It meets on a regular basis (bi-monthly) to discuss the services on offer. They help give the practice, and its team, a patient perspective, and they help identify solutions to problems so that improvements can be made for the benefit of all. They also support the practice in organising health promotion and self-care events.

If you have any non-medical point(s) to raise, please direct them to your local PPG member. Geoff Matthews is the Chair of the PPG. Other members are:
