Join Your Local Patient Participation Group (PPGs)

Have a say in how your local health services are delivered by signing up to your GP practice's Patient Participation Group (PPG).

NHS Leeds CCG works alongside PPGs to support their development and influence across Leeds. We have worked with PPGs across the city to develop a number of tools, resources and initiatives to support PPGs. You can find further information by using the buttons below.

What is are PPGs?

PPGs are a group of patients and members of staff based out of a GP practice. They work to improve the overall experience of the patient population registered at that practice.

Who sits on a PPG?

PPGs are usually made up of a group of volunteer patients and the practice manager. There is usually one or more of the GPs from the practice too.

What do PPGs do?

PPGs should meet on a regular basis to discuss the services on offer. They will look at how improvements can be made for the benefit of patients and the practice. Depending on the skills, availability, and motivation of those involved, what you can do in your PPG can vary.

For example, PPGs undertake an annual patient survey to improve ways of working and relationships between patients and the practice.
