What are the benefits of a PPG?

Good for the community because:

  • patients will have an organisation through which they can identify their own needs
  • patients will be able to get an idea of what is needed to improve healthcare and make sure that the patient view is always represented


Good for patients because:

  • patients will have a better understanding and knowledge of the practice and its staff
  • if appropriate, patients will be consulted about arrangements for their primary healthcare before decisions are made
  • patients will benefit from improved communications with staff
  • patients will have a forum to suggest positive ideas and voice concerns


Good for practice staff because:

  • GPs and their staff will be able to plan services jointly with patients in order to increase their effectiveness
  • They will be able to get help from patients in meeting targets and objectives.
  • They will have a forum to voice concerns ideas and suggestions to patients
  • they will get closer to the community for whom they care
