About the Patient Participation Group

Are you interested in finding out how your GP practice works and about the health services it delivers?  

Why not join our Patient Participation Group?

Royal Crescent and Preston Road Practice have an active Patient Participation Group, who play a part in shaping roles and services within the surgery. We are always seeking new members to have a say in what we do. If you would like to join our PPG group, please contact the surgery via email, or complete a sign up form and return this to the surgery.

The PPG has the following aim as decided by its members:

"To work closely with the surgery team, representing the views of patients, to develop the workings of the surgery and improve the health of the community".

A group meeting
  • Promote the proactive engagement of patients
  • Seek views from patients and act on their views
  • Involve patients in decisions about the range and quality of services provided
  • Involve patients in decisions that lead to changes to the services the practice provides
  • Assist in gathering views from the wider patient population through the use of local practice surveys

This group helps us identify areas where we can improve or change, help us set goals and produce positive results. We would like to be able to find out the opinions of as many patients as possible, whether from meetings or an electronic forum.

We will keep you updated on surgery news and forward surgery newsletters.  We will meet 3-4 times a year.  We believe that by working together, this will help ensure the delivery of a modern, high quality general practice.
