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 is committed to working 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. Further information can be found below using the buttons.

What is a PPG?

PPGs are a group of patients and members of staff based out of a GP practice that 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, the practice manager and one or more of the GPs from the practice.

What do PPGs do?

PPGs should meet on a regular basis to discuss the services on offer, and 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 staff and GPs.
