Patient Participation Group

Our patient volunteer group, working closely with the Mereside Medical team to promote excellent patient service.

A Patient Participation Group (PPG) is a group of volunteer patients, carers and Practice staff who meet regularly to discuss and support the running of their Practice. The NHS requires every practice to have a PPG. A PPG is open to every patient on the GP practice list. All communities, groups, genders, ages, ethnicities, and disabilities representing the patient list are encouraged to join.

Mereside Medical Patient Participation Group was recently formed by merging the individual practice PPGs into one cohesive group  that serves our three practices.

We aim to act as an ‘independent ear’ for patients, bringing together themes from patient feedback to inform constructive and collaborative discussions with Mereside Medical to improve the services for the benefit of the whole practice population.

Please note: We will not provide medical advice or deal with personal issues or complaints. These must follow the practice procedures (Feedback or Complaints).
