Welcome To The Patient Participation Group (PPG) Page - Patients Have A Voice!
As part of the NHS reforms, which came into force in April 2014, each GP Practice is required to establish a Patient participation Group (PPG) to represent patients views on how well their Practice is performing in meeting the needs of their community.
The Buxted and East Hoathly Medical Centres were quick to establish a PPG. A small Committee of volunteers, representing a cross-section of patients from our three sites, meet on a regular basis. The PPG's main purpose is to ensure that the services provided by the Medical Centres are responsive to patients needs and that where necessary, improve over time.
In addition, part of the remit of the PPG is to carry out research, and to hold health awareness and information events and displays. We can also help patients to find additional services and support for their condition in the community.
If you would like any further information regarding the PPG, or would like to help, please contact us via our email address:- email@example.com . This email address is currently monitored by Chair of the PPG, Alison Ledward.
Should you wish to make a complaint to the surgery, these should not be sent to the PPG but instead directly to the surgery, in order that any complaint can be investigated fully and responded to. The surgery's email address is firstname.lastname@example.org .
