GP Patient Participation Groups
GP Practices in Somerset have Patient Participation Groups (PPGs). PPGs work in partnership with their GP practice and are vital in ensuring that the patient voice is heard. PPGs act as “critical friends” to their respective surgery, looking at how the surgery currently works, setting objectives for the coming year and agreeing how they can help to achieve those objectives. In Somerset, we have a countywide network of PPG Chairs who meet together on a bimonthly basis. The network share best practice and new ways of working. The Engagement team joins the network to ensure we hear from and work with local PPGs.
