Patient Participation Group

Get involved with the practice to help us improve our service

What is the Patient Participation Group?

Patient Participation Groups (PPGs) are a unique partnership between patients, GPs and their practice.

The PPGs

·         help patients to take more responsibility for their health.

·         contribute to the continuous improvement of services and quality of care

·         foster improved communication between the practice and its patients

·         provide practical support for the practice and help to implement change

The AMC patient group is open to any registered patient to join and currently meets 6 times a year on a Wednesday afternoon between 1230pm and 2pm. At least one GP and a member of the practice management team attend the meetings.

The meetings are held to discuss matters relating to the services provided and how the PPG can assist the medical team with new initiatives. They are not a forum for discussing individual complaints or issues and members of the group do NOT have access to any patient information.

The PPG hold Open Mornings to gauge patients’ views and also produce a newsletter twice a year focusing on Practice news and the latest NHS updates.

The group is also a member of the National Association for Patient Participation N.A.P.P. www.NAPP.org.uk
