Patient Participation Groups (PPGs)

Enhanced Services Patient Participation Scheme

The patient participation enhanced service came to an end on 1 April 2015. It is now a contractual requirement for all practices to have a patient participation group (PPG) and to make their best efforts for this group to be representative of the practice population. Funding associated with the former ES has been reinvested in global sum.

Patient Participation

The purpose of patient participation is to ensure that patients and carers are involved in decisions about the range, shape and quality of services provided by their practice. The requirement aims to promote the proactive and innovative engagement of patients and carers through the use of effective PPGs. 

The National Association for Patient Participation (N.A.P.P)

The National Association for Patient Participation promotes and supports patient participation in primary care. Groups are an effective way for patients and GP surgeries to work together to improve services and to promote health and improved quality of care.
