Virtual Patient Participation Group
#TeamWMC need you - be the voice for your community - be the voice for your GP Practice
Would you be interested in joining our virtual patient participation group (PPG)?
The PPG is a collection of patients at a surgery who have an interest in the services provide. The PPG cross barriers to embrace diversity and work in partnership with the surgery to improve common understanding and help identify new services to meet patients’ needs.
- Do you have something to say but do not have the time to attend meetings?
- Do you have ideas on how to improve your local practice?
To get the most out of our Practice, we want to create a safe, friendly outlet for helpful, constructive ideas and comments. The PPG online forum (email and facebook) has been developed to grow our virtual PPG to help patients work together and share ideas before they are presented to the Practice.
If you would like to join or find out more, please email Tracey Whitehead at firstname.lastname@example.org
What is a PPG?
This is a group of volunteer patients who are involved in making sure the surgery meets patients' needs.
How will we communicate?
Communication will be via email (email@example.com) or via our private PPG facebook page (both remain confidential within PPG members).
What is expected of a PPG member?
We want to create a safe, friendly outlet for helpful and constructive ideas and comments. Your experiences matter and you can bring different ideas to the surgery to help us treat patients better and help us improve what we do in some way. We are looking for honest, open and constructive feedback, this is not a forum to vent, complain and be personal.
How much time do I need to commit?
Your choice! We will communicate accordingly and if you want to be invovled, just respond! We would like you to participate at least quarterly for you to remain an active member.
Who can be a PPG member at WMC?
Any registered patient. If you are no longer a patient, your registration will automatically cease.
What if I join then decide I no longer want to be a part of the PPG?
You can leave at any time, just let Tracey know via email (as above), or our Chair (David) or Vice Chair (Phil).
