Patient Participation Group

Patient Participation Groups meet regularly to help improve services at their GP practice and to feed ideas into the planning of health services. Attending your local patient participation group means you can work with your practice to deal with issues that affect you, other local people and your GP surgery.

Who can join?

Any patients over the age of 16 registered with the practice.

How do I join the group?

Please register with our PPG. The group will have a chair, vice chair and secretary and will be supported by the Practice Manager and other staff from time to time. The group will also be supported by Healthwatch Sutton.

What does the group discuss?

The aim is to be a “critical friend” to the practice, and the group has contributed ideas to the appointments system, the garden area, online services including prescriptions, privacy at reception. It also has two representatives on Sutton’s Patient Reference Group who give wider system feedback to the group.

When do we meet?

Quarterly and currently virtual via Teams.
