Patient Participation Group




Aims of the Patient Participation Group

The Patient Participation Group was established to provide an independent overview of services and facilities at St James' Surgery.

The group comprises of patients of the surgery who wish to work together with the staff and doctors to help them to meet the needs of their patients, improve services and to share an understanding of issues and opportunities.

Whilst the PPG is not a vehicle for clinical complaints it will:

  • Receive reports about and comment on operational matters relating to St James' Surgery and make comments or suggestions there on.
  • Be fully briefed about NHS and practice policies and delivery of services
  • Establish a two-way communication between the partners, staff and patients.

Membership of the PPG committee is open to all patients of the practice. If you are interested in joining the PPG Committee, please contact the Practice Manager. You will be very welcome!
