This Patient Participation Group will:

1.        Contribute to practice decision-making and will be consulted on service development and provision;

2.      Provide feedback on patients’ needs, concerns and interests and challenge the practice constructively whenever necessary;

3.      Serve as a ‘safety valve’ for dealing with grumbles and complaints about the practice – representing patients but also helping them to understand the practice’s viewpoint;

4.      Assist the practice and its patients by arranging voluntary groups/support within the community;

5.      Communicate information about the community which may affect healthcare;

6.      Give patients a voice in the organisation of their care;

7.      Promote good health and higher levels of health literacy by encouraging and supporting activities within the practice and promoting preventive medicine;

8.      Influence and monitor the services and the provision of secondary healthcare and social care locally;

9.      Possibly fundraise for medical equipment or other facilities to improve the practice and/or fund the activities of the PPG; and

10.   Liaise with other PPGs in the area.
