GP practices have Patient Participation Groups (PPGs) to provide an opportunity for patients to get more involved in their local practice and influence the way services are provided. Speak to your practice to find out how to join.
Patient Participation Groups (PPGs) are groups of patients who contribute feedback, ideas and suggestions directly to their GP practice and who can bring the voice and experience of patients into the heart of the ICB.
Each of the local GP practices have their own group which gives local people the opportunity to get involved at a very local level and have their say.
Matters discussed may relate to the surgery or to other health experiences within Lincolnshire.
Raising awareness of the value of patient participation!
We contacted our Patient Participation Groups (PPGs) and practices in Lincolnshire and asked them to join us in celebrating the excellent work PPGs do to support our practices and give us a patient voice.
