Patient Participation Group (PPG)
Are you interested in having your say?
Members of the PPG will become involved in the range and quality of the services we provide and take part in the decision making process that leads to any change in our existing services. The PPG can take a leading part in developing patient surveys, sharing results, newsletters and patient feedback.
Our Patient Participation Group was formed as an email group in 2011, with the intention of our patients becoming more an integral part of our practice.
As of May 2016, we have developed and improved our PPG by changing it from an email group to one where we meet together face to face on a bi-monthly basis. The PPG is coordinated by the Practice and the patient members. Group meetings are also chaired by a patient member.
It is our aim that we have a broad range of patient members to get a truly representative group. At present, the PPG members consist of eleven patients, Tracey Squirrell (Practice Manager).
We appreciate that everyone leads full busy lives and that our group is small and does not fully reflect the practice population. With this in mind, we have decided to create a new virtual discussion group to encourage wider patient participation and representation. This means we can keep in touch via an on-line discussion board. If you are a patient at Hadleigh or Boxford, you are passionate and committed to improving quality care and you would like to volunteer to be part of our Virtual PPG, then we would like to hear from you.
We have developed a very simple sign up form which you can download, complete and return to the practice or email to Tracey, details below.
