Patient Participation Groups (PPGs) are groups of patients at general practice level, who meet on a regular basis to create a connection between their practice and the local community, and affect positive changes. The specific aims of each group depend on local needs, but all aim to involve patients in improving the health and well-being of the local community, helping to give patients a say in the way services are delivered, and to ensure the practice remains accountable, dynamic and responsive to their needs.
Bartley Green Medical Practice has a newly formed pro active group who began meeting in December 2012, presently consisting of 13 members.
We are looking to involve as many patients in the group as possible, on a voluntary basis, so that we can shape and develop the services that we deliver to you, to make sure we offer you the services that you would expect and require. Your contribution would be valued and appreciated in helping us to help you, so we can give you the best quality health care. If you feel we do things well, we would like to know, so we can continue the good work!
What is involved?
Suggestions and Ideas
We would like to hear your views and ideas on what you would like to see from the surgery, so we can identify areas for improvement and influence the development of the local health services. We will gather this information by inviting you to participate in simple on-line surveys up to four times a year.
Occasionally we may contact you for your opinion on certain proposed changes.
Members of the group will be invited to attend the Patient Group, perhaps twice a year, to discuss the focus of any changes to be made and the outcomes.
Topical Educational Events
We may offer topical educational events, if the members would like us to. Attendance will be offered primarily to Patient Group Members.
