About the Patient Participation Group


The Patient Participation Group (PPG) is a communication channel between the Surgery, it's patients and the public in it's locality. Any registered patient or carer of a registered patient at any Lister House location is eligible to join the PPG. Volunteers and Surgery staff work together to improve patients' experience. They do this by:

  • Offering opinions in a constructive manner and to put forward ideas on behalf of other patients
  • Support in clinical commissioning decisions where appropriate
  • Improving communication between surgery, patients and the wider community about matters concerning the surgery and health in general
  • Providing assistance in development of new services
  • Encouraging a spirit of self help and support amongst patients to improve their health and social care
  • Acting as ambassadors for the Surgery at events and in the wider community

The PPG operate in accordance with their Terms of Reference.
