Patient Participation Group
The Waterside Medical Practice Patient Participation Group (PPG) aims are to promote and foster good relations between the Practice and patients, to act as advisors on communications between the Practice and patients and to work to improve services from a patient point of view.
The PPG is affiliated to N.A.P.P. (National Association for Patient Participation), the umbrella organisation for patient-led groups in general practice in the UK.
Membership of the PPG is available to all registered patients of the Practice. To maintain effective functioning, the committee will be limited to twelve members and will endeavour to meet five to six times per year.
The PPG’s activities will be determined by the needs of the practice, its patients and the wider community.
