Take control of the healthcare you receive
We've already read about Healthwatch and how it works - and there's another way you can get directly involved in shaping healthcare services.
You can join your local Patient Participation Group - run through your local GP practice.
Patient Participation Groups (PPGs) work hand in hand with the GP practice to support and advise their local doctor’s surgery on patients’ needs.
GP surgeries across Buckinghamshire rely on the support from PPGs as they give a voice to all and help the surgery keep an ear to the ground. Groups are made up of patients from the surgery itself – no other qualifications are needed.
If you are interested in becoming part of a PPG then please contact your local doctor’s surgery for more information.
