Patient Participation Groups
What is a Patient Participation Group (PPG)?
NHS Birmingham South Central is a membership of 57 GP practices in the south and centre of Birmingham. Many of our GP practices run patient participation groups. These are often known as PPGs.
PPGs are practice based groups that exist to create a partnership between patients and the GP practice to work together to improve services provided by the practice.
PPG meetings are usually chaired by a patient and are supported by GP practice staff, this varies and may be the practice manager, GP or practice nurse. You can contact your local GP Practice to find out if your GP practice has a PPG.
