St Andrew's Patient Participation Group (PPG) is looking for new members.

You don’t need any specialist medical knowledge to join the PPG, and it won’t take up a huge amount of your time. We usually meet on a quarterly basis on a Tuesday or Wednesday evening from 6 PM for an hour to an hour and a half.

We appreciate that many patients have busy lives and may not wish to attend regular meetings, but we would be interested in communicating via email on a quarterly basis as part of a ‘Virtual’ Patient Participation Group. 

Who are we?

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

We meet on a regular basis to discuss changes and innovations at the Practice from the patient’s perspective. We aim to keep all patients informed of what’s happening at the Practice and give feedback to the Practice team.

It is important to stress that this is not a forum for personal complaints nor the discussion of individual medical problems, St Andrew's already provides procedures for these.

Interested in joining us?

All communities, groups, genders, ages, ethnicities, and disabilities representing the patient list are encouraged to join.

If you would like to join the Patient Group (virtual or face-to-face), please email us at  ppg_standrewsmedicalpracticespennymoor@outlook.com .  In addition to anything else you may wish to add, could you please include a brief description as to what you feel you can bring to the Group and to the Practice.
