What is the Patient Participation Group (PPG)?
The Patient Participation Group is made up of a group of patients and staff who meet regularly, creating a direct link between patients and staff and the services provided by the Practice. The group provides a forum for patients to raise issues, discuss developments and contribute to the decision making to improve services within the surgery. It is not a forum where individuals are able to raise individual concerns or complaints.
The Baildon Medical Practice PPG was established in 2011 and is made up of representatives, the Practice Manager and a GP Partner.
Meetings are held at the surgery fourtimes a year. Informal ad-hoc meetings are held between these scheduled meetings in order to discuss agendas, matters arising and event planning.
To ensure that the experiences, views and needs of patients are sought and communicated to the professional staff to help to improve the services and day to day running of the Practice.
To work collaboratively with Practice staff, other PPGs, the Integrated Care Board (ICB) and the Care Quality Commission to ensure high standards of service for all who use the Practice.
To consider suggestions related to the service provided by the Practice which might be of further benefit to the patients.
To act as a sounding board for future surgery plans.
To organise health promotion events relevant to patient needs.
To undertake surveys and form action plans, which address issues, raised by these surveys.
