Patient Participation Group (PPG) awareness week

Published on: Wednesday, 28-May-2014

Knowsley Clinical Commissioning Group is encouraging local patients to become more actively involved in their local GP practice and the services that they provide during national PPG Awareness Week (2 – 7 June).

The week aims to highlight the importance of patient participation, ensuring that patients’ perspectives are at the heart of primary care, as well as improving the quality and safety of services.

Each GP practice in Knowsley has a Patient Participation Group (PPG), which provides an opportunity for local patients and carers to provide feedback and help to improve how GP services are provided.

Anyone wishing to become a PPG member should contact their GP practice for more information.
