The first PPG meeting was held on Thursday the 20th of May, whilst this was only a small meeting it is a useful first step in empowering the PPG. The minutes of this meeting are available here. The minutes also mention NAPP – the National Association for Patient participation. NAPP is a useful resource for anyone wanting to know more about what a PPG is and what they can do.
Item 4 of the minutes concerns the election of a Chair. We would encourage anyone who would like to put themselves forward as the chair to write a short statement on why they think they would be suitable and what they would aim to achieve in the position. Voting will be opened up to the wider practice population via our website and Facebook group.
If you would be interested in joining the PPG, fill in an application form and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org or print the form off and deliver it to one of our surgeries.
