Patients urged to sign up to local PPG and make a difference

3rd June 2013

Patients are being encouraged to sign up to their local Patient Participation Group (PPG) and work in partnership with their GP surgery to help improve healthcare.


As part of the first ever PPG Awareness Week (1-8 June), more members are being sought across West Leicestershire to help support their local GP practice. PPGs are made up of volunteers who are interested in healthcare, as well as practice staff, and meet regularly to make a positive contribution to the health services and facilities offered by the surgery to its patients.
