About the PPG

Market Cross Surgery is looking for new members to join our Patient Participation Group (PPG) which has dwindled in numbers recently.

What is the Role of the Patient Group?

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.  The PPG’s role is to:

• Be a critical friend to the practice

• Advise the practice on the patient perspective and providing insight into the responsiveness and quality of services

• Encourage patients to take greater responsibility for their own and their family’s health

• Carry out research into the views of those who use the practice

• Organise health promotion events and improving health literacy

• Have regular communication with the patient population.

We would like to have a good representation of our patient population on the group so encourage anyone over the age of 16 to submit an expression of interest.  The group meets at the practice on a quarterly basis for an hour in the early evening.

If you would like to volunteer to join the group please email our Administration Team on [email protected] or collect an application form from reception (also available to download from our website – )
