About the Group
Littlefield has had a patient participation group (PPG) for many years now and we are always looking for new members.
Patient participation can benefit both patients and practices. Having a PPG creates a connection between the practice and its patients; allowing open, constructive discussion and analysis of service provision and offering an alternative perspective on many of the topics relevant to general practice.
A PPG is a mechanism which at different times can represent the patient population to the practice and the practice to the wider community. PPGs can help the practice to account for its provision of healthcare through various mechanisms, with the outcomes being used to improve the quality and level of healthcare services and facilities.
PPGs can give you an involvement with your practice and could give you a say in the workings of the Care Trust. These are some examples of what the group could be expected to be involved with:
If you think you would like to be part of our Group and be able to influence the future of your healthcare provision or would like more information about our PPG, please join us in one of our sessions. We meet bi-monthly on the 3rd Tuesday of every odd month
