How does a PPG work?

Posted 15/01/2014

Whilst all PPGs may be slightly different, they generally tend to be made up of volunteer patients, the practice manager, one or two GPs and may have some administrative support from the practice. Most groups tend to have regular meetings at the surgery, but some groups also involve a wider group of patients in the form of a virtual group – using e-mail to communicate news and seek patient views and input. Some GP practices only run a virtual group instead of coming together to meet, as this has proven more suitable to get people involved in a way that suits them.
