A NATIONAL CAMPAIGN seeks to get patients involved with their local GP practices by setting up Patient Participation Groups (PPGs). PPGs can have an important role to play in helping to give patients a say in the way services are delivered to best meet their needs, and the needs of the local community.
The Growing Patient Participation campaign is a joint initiative run by the National Association for Patient Participation, Royal College of General Practitioners, British Medical Association and NHS Alliance. The aim is to see more PPGs set up across the country.
The two practices in Hedon (Church View Surgery and Hedon Group Practice) do not currently have Patient Participation Groups. If you want more information or wish to get involved then the Growing Patient Participation website has lots of information about this.
Interested in Patient Participation Groups? Then let the Hedon Blog know.
