It is a contractual requirement for all English GP practices to form a patient participation group (PPG) and to make reasonable efforts for this to be representative of the practice population.

National Patient Participation Group Week takes place from 19th - 24th June 2017 - a chance to raise awareness of PPGs and how to get involved. Learn more about PPGs and how to join your surgery's PPG if they have one.

If they don't, you may want to start one yourself.
