Patient Participation Group

What we do and how to get involved

The Patient Participation Group (PPG) is a patient led representative group of patients, GPs and Practice staff who meet throughout the year to discuss Practice issues to support Arlington Road Medical Practice to improve the patient experience.

The objectives:

  • give patients a voice
  • enable two way communication with the Practice, providing patient feedback and explaining changes to patients to improve understanding
  • provide practical help through volunteering and fundraising
  • promote health education 
  • influence local health care provision

We have regular meetings with a small representative committee of patients, a GP partner and the Business Manager.

All patients are eligible to join, with a maximum number of 16.  We meet six times a year.  If you are interested getting involved, please complete the application form by clicking on the image opposite >

Alternatively Join Our Patient Reference Group

Alternatively, you can sign up to be part of the Patient Reference Group receiving email questionnaires and providing valuable feedback from a representative section of patients, without commiting to attending meetings.

Our Patient Participation Group is affiliated to the National Association for Patient Participation (NAPP) and is governed by the rules of that registered charity. Their purpose is to bring about positive collective change; it is not a channel for concerns regarding personal treatment. 
These should always be directed to Practice Manager, Shirley Moth.
