Patient Participation Groups (PPGs)
All of the nineteen GP practices in North Norfolk have patient groups, often referred to as PPGs. They offer members of the public the opportunity to become more involved in how the practice runs. This could be about the physical building, waiting times, services offered or wider healthcare issues.
North and South Norfolk CCGs have been working together to offer support to local PPGs and practices. For example, we have developed the guide below. Use the drop down menu or the navigation box on the left of this page to find out more about PPG Conferences, Learn and Share Events, PPG Campaigns Toolkits and Social Media Training for PPGs and Practices.
To join your GP practice’s patient group speak to your surgery to find out when the next meeting is or check the practice website to see if it contains information about their PPG.
More information about PPGs is available from the National Association of Patient Participation (NAPP)
