Providing a stronger voice for your PPG

Rosalind DewarBlog

It’s Patient Participation Group week from 10 – 15 June so here are some tips on using your practice website to support your PPG:

  1. Provide some information about what the group is all about and how to join. Promote key aspects on how small things can help your surgery.
  2. List the members are and what they do for the group. You could add a short biography for each member or spotlight a different member of your group each month.
  3. Publish the time, date and agenda for your next PPG meeting on your website to encourage more patients to join the group.
  4. Post accessible meeting minutes on your website as soon as possible after the meeting.

Take a look at how some of our practice clients are using their websites to promote their PPGs:
