Patient Participation Groups (PPGs) are groups of patients who have an interest in healthcare issues,who work with practice staff to support and improve local services. PPGs may also work together to influence wider issues, and to share good practice and ideas.
There is not set way in which they work - the aims and work of each group entirely depends on local needs - but they have the aim of making sure that their practice puts the patient, and improving health, at the heart of everything it does.
