Patient Participation Group Information

Best Practice Guide Introduction

PPG Best Practice Guide

A Patient Participation Group (PPG) is a group of patients, carers and GP practice staff who meet to discuss practice issues and patient experience to help improve the service.

Since April 2015, it has been a contractual requirement of NHS England for all GP practices to have a PPG and to make reasonable efforts for this to be representative of the practice population.

This Best Practice Guide has been designed to assist GP practices and patients in setting up and maintaining a PPG to improve services for the whole of their GP practice population.
