Patient Participation Group
The Orchard Medical Practice has recently formed a Patient Participation Group (PPG). The objective of a PPG is to:
Enhance communication between Patients and the Practice.
Promote Health Education and Awareness to ensure the Practice continues to offer excellent Patient care and service provisions.
Discuss suggestions and complaints and look at ways of implementing any changes to improve patient care to avoid re-occurance of events which initiate a complaint.
Discuss any other issues to considered to be appropriate which would be beneficial to the Practice population and the Practice.
The PPG will provide a structure that obtains the views of Patients to have a say in local health issues and service provisions. This will enable the Practice to obtain feedback and ideas from a cross section of Practice population. The PPG should consist of a comprehensive representative group of patients from varying ages, sex and ethnic backgrounds.
