Patient Participaton Group

a)     Profile of members of Practice Participation Group (PPG) aim to represent the Practice population



b)    It was seen from the data that most patients who responded were over the age of 65. Patients under 65 were          therefore asked face to face whether they were interested in joining the group. There was a good gender mix.


c)    Discussion with some members of the PRG brought up the issues of how easy it was to make urgent  appointment and helpfulness of front line staff.


d)    We obtained views of registered patients with the survey conducted through Survey Monkey.  These were handed out face to face at the end of the GP consultation, left at the front reception desk and emailed.


e)    Results of the survey have been displayed on the notice board in Reception area and published on the website. They have also been emailed to PPG members and feedback requested. A meeting will then be set up to discuss outcomes.
