PATIENT PARTICIPATION GROUPS
Patient participation is a unique partnership between patients, GPs and their practice which is essential to and results in high quality and responsive care.
Patient Participation Groups (PPGs) work in partnership with their practices to:
help patients to take more responsibility for their health.
contribute to the continuous improvement of services and quality of care
foster improved communication between the practice and its patient
provide practical support for the practice and help to implement change
The first PPGs were established around 1972 by GPs in England and Wales. Since then the PPG movement has grown rapidly. Experience shows that successful practices and effective PPGs go hand in hand.

SHEPPERTON MEDICAL PRACTICE PATIENT GROUP
We meet quarterly at the practice and now have this space on the Practices website to keep you informed of what we do.
Are you interested in supporting the practice in delivering / developing patient services?
We are looking for patients from all age groups, social and cultural backgrounds to help us with practice surveys and suggestions.
We would like to expand our group and gather the views of a wider and larger representation of our practice population.
