Our Patient Participation Group

The practice has a Patient Participation Group (PPG) which acts independently of the practice.  Its job is to represent the patients of  the surgery in helping the practice to design services to meet the needs of its patients.

PPGs can play a number of roles, including:

  • Advising the practice on the patient perspective 
  • Organising health promotion events 
  • Communicating with the wider patient body 
  • Running volunteer services and support groups to meet local needs 
  • Carrying out research into the views of those who use the practice (and their carers) 
  • Influencing the practice or the wider NHS to improve commissioning
  • Fundraising to improve the services provided by the practice

If you would like to become part of the PPG please email: thewillows@nhs.net
