Most of our GP member practices have a Patient Participation Group (PPG).
The role of these groups is primarily to support the practice - giving thoughts ideas and opinions, helping with specific pieces of work that call for a patient perspective and acting as a communicator between the practice and their community. PPGs also represent their practice population through East Surrey CCG's patient Reference Group.
To find out more about your practice and the work of PPGs check out their website or speak to your Practice Manager.
East Surrey CCG Patient Reference Group
The role of the Patient Reference Group (PRG) is to help the Governing Body of NHS East Surrey Clinical Commissioning Group (ESCCG) make decisions about the services they commission and to ensure that these services meet the health needs of the local population. The PRG are there to ensure that the voice of patients, their carers and the East Surrey public is embedded within the business of ESCCG. Membership is drawn from the Patient Participation Groups of the East Surrey GP Practices.
To find out more about the Patient Reference Group speak to Carol Rowley by email or call 01883 772800 or 07827 253111.
