What is a Patient Participation Group?
Put simply, a Patient Participation Group or PPG is a group of patients from this GP Practice who meet with health professionals of this practice to discuss topics of mutual interest and to make positive suggestions about Whitehall Medical Practice.
Whitehall Medical Practice formerly had a PPG running for many years and was one of the first practices to have one. There is formal structure with a formal 'Constitution'.
When and where do we meet?
Meetings are about to recommence with the next one being held on Tuesday 7th February 2017 @ 6.30pm at Whitehall Medical Practice. If you are interested in attending please email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01788 542212 to express your interest.
What do we do?
We take an active interest in healthcare and have a say in how services are planned, developed and evaluated.
What we don't do!
We don't discuss patients' personal health needs and we don't have access to patients' health records. These are confidential between Doctor and Patient.
This is why we ask you to provide your contact details when you join us as they are kept quite separately from your personal health records.
How can you get involved?
Contact the Practice by either:
- Visiting reception and expressing your interest
- Emailling email@example.com
- Telephone main reception 01788 542212 and express your interest
Unable to attend meetings but want to have your say?
We are in the process of setting up a Virtual Members Group which means you will receive updates about topics and have your say by email. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved!
