Patient Participation Group
What is a PPG?
A Patient Participation Group (PPG) is a group of people who are patients of the surgery and want to help it work as well as it can for patients, doctors and staff.
Your experiences matter and you can bring different ideas to the surgery to help us treat patients better or to improve what we do in some way. By volunteering to join the PPG you will also gain a better understanding of the NHS, and gather feedback from other patients.
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, we are setting up a virtual patient representation group so that you can have your say. We will ask the members of this representative group some questions from time to time, such as what you think about our opening times or the quality of the care or service you received. We will contact you via email and keep our surveys succinct so it shouldn’t take too much of your time.
We aim to gather around a hundred patients from as broad a spectrum as possible to get a truly representative sample. We need young people, workers, retirees, people with long-term conditions and people from non-British ethnic groups.
We are looking for patients who are available to attend quarterly meetings at the Seaton Surgery to discuss ideas about the practice and its services to patients.
If you are interested and would like to become a part of this, please give your details to a member of our Reception Team.
