What is a PPG?
For those unfamiliar with PPGs, all GP practices should have a Patient Participation Group made up of patients from the practice. PPGs meet regularly with staff and discuss how to improve services and promote health. The Care Quality Commission (CQC) seeks views from PPGs when it inspects GP practices. Many PPGs get involved in broader discussions about health services for a wider local area, and work together in networks.
