Birchwood Patient Participation Group


We are keen to resurrect our patient participation group (PPG) but in the past we have struggled to get members from across our patient population and to then get attendance at meetings, especially on cold, wet winter nights.


We are therefore following the example of some other surgeries, in setting up a “virtual” patient group where we would send emails’ asking for opinions on various topics. In time the group would hopefully develop and run itself.


We feel the aims of a PPG should be to:

  • Contribute to the continuous improvement of our services
  • Help improve communications between patients and the practice
  • Provide practical support and help

PPGs are about:

  • Open and honest communication
  • All views being valid and relevant

PPGs are not:

  • A forum for individual’s complaints

If you would like to be a member of the Birchwood virtual PPG, all you have to do is e-mail us at birchwood.medicalpractice@nhs.net and let us know. So we can verify that you are a patient it would be helpful to tell us your full name, address and date of birth.
