Patient Participation Groups (PPGs) enable local people to get involved in their local GP practice. They can influence how the GP practice is run, including management and delivery of health services. Each GP practice is contractually required to support the creation of a dedicated PPG; but they all need the active support of local patients to make this happen.
Existing PPGs will be interested to know that there is a patient-led network of PPGs in Barnet and new Members are always welcome. Further details of Barnet Patient Participation Network are available.
