A Patient Participation Group (PPG) is a group of patients interested in health and healthcare issues, who want to get involved with and support the running of their local GP Practice. Most PPGs include both members of practice staff and patients, and meet at regular intervals to decide ways and means of making a positive contribution to the services and facilities offered by the practice to its patients.
The Begg Surgery also have an established Patient Forum; as we want to make sure that the views of all our patients are heard. The group meets regularly and we welcome anyone interested in joining in. Our Patient Forum is organised by the Practice Manager. If you are interested in joining please do let us know by either sending an email or leaving your details for the Practice Manager at the Surgery Reception.
