PPGs provide an opportunity for local people to get involved with their practice and influence the provision of local health services. Members contribute their views, make suggestions and provide feedback on services they may have used. Groups can also get involved with supporting local health initiatives. We provide opportunities for patient groups to come together in their local areas to share good practice, to discuss health issues and raise concerns with NHS managers. Through our networking events, we also provide engagement opportunities for PPG members across Dorset to meet with a wide range of health and care professionals. You can find out more about different PPG activities and projects below.
If you are interested in finding out more about your own PPG, talk to your practice reception team or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
