Patient Participation Group

PPG will focus on:

·          Representing the patient experience both with the practice and the CQC

·          Support better healthcare and treatment

·          Help the practice to improve service delivery


Key to the success of PPG will be the improvement of communication between the patients, doctors and practice staff with everyone embracing the need for continuing improvement of services.


With this in mind we recognise the need to meet and talk with a cross section of patient groups including but not limited to:


Young families

Young adults (18 – 25)

Adults (25+)


Retired people

Patients with chronic diseases (i.e. diabetes, asthma, COPD etc.)


We would be pleased to chat to anyone with ideas or opinions on how we can jointly take this new initiative forward and where our priorities should lie and anyone who would be interested in joining our upgraded PPG, which meets quarterly. Next meeting is scheduled on 15th February 1pm at Chigwell Medical Centre.
