Patient Participation Group

Patient Participation Group (PPG)

The PPG is a link between Arden Medical Centre Patients and the Practice.

The PPG is made up of a small number of Arden Medical Centre Patients who meet frequently to consider a range of issues aimed at fostering a good, friendly, efficient, innovative service and environment throughout the Practice.

The PPG needs your input to help us with this aim.

What the PPG provides

  • A conduit to improve communications between the Practice and Patients.
  • Two way transfer of information and ideas.
  • Early highlighting of service development within the Practice.
  • Patient feedback about what service is provided – good, bad or indifferent – patient’s views are highly valued and the Practice does try to listen!
  • Patients' ideas on what they might like the Practice to be providing.
  • Public meetings and events with medical education as a theme.
  • The PPG does NOT provide any medical advice.
