Constable Country Patient Participation Group (PPG)
The new PPG has been meeting regularly since July 16 and we would be pleased to hear from you. A list of members is available at both surgeries. We also have comments boxes in the waiting rooms. Our email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We thought it would be helpful to explain the role of PPGs and here is a summary.

PPGs can also help with:
Patient Representative Group
The practice aims to ensure it is connected with patients and understands the needs of different patient groups. The NHS is constantly mentioned in the media for a variety of reasons, and I’m sure all our patients understand that we operate in a very challenging environment. Demand is increasing and resources are diminishing, and we constantly review how we operate the practice to deliver the best service possible. It is therefore essential that we understand what services different patient groups need, their relative importance and how they wish these services to be delivered.
The current PPG has done an excellent job over the years and we are currently reviewing how we operate it, recognising that technology and social media can play an important role in enabling us to connect with our patients. I’m pleased to announce that Healthwatch Suffolk will be helping us over the next few months to establish a new structure for the PPG. We are therefore looking for representatives from our patient list. If you are interested in getting involved, in any capacity, then to please write to me at the practice briefly describing the demographic you represent e.g. parent of young children, commuter, disabled, elderly etc., and how and in what capacity you would like to engage with the practice e.g. attend meetings, use social media, PPG administration, local representative, volunteer at events etc.
