Patient Participation Group Awareness Week, starts 31st May

Next week marks Patient Participation Group Awareness Week, run by the National Association for Patient Participation. A Patient Participation Group is set up by a GP practice and its role includes:

  • being a critical friend to the practice;
  • advising the practice on the patient perspective and providing insight into the
    responsiveness and quality of services;
  • encouraging patients to take greater responsibility for their own and their family’s
  • carrying out research into the views of those who use the practice;
  • organising health promotion events and improving health literacy;
  • regular communication with the patient population.

The NAPP will be sharing stories on its Facebook and Twitter, and encouraging others to use the hashtag #PPGpromotion and #PPGawarenessweek to promote PPGs and the work they do.
