Most of the 45 GP Practices that are part of the Stoke-on-Trent have a Patient Participation Group (PPG).
Anyone registered with that practice is entitled to become a member.
Members of the PPGs have the opportunity to work with doctors and practice managers to:
- Influence decisions about services and facilities
- Help practices make the best use of resources
- Improve communications between staff and patients
- Make sure patient views are properly represented
You will also have an opportunity to take part in practical tasks such as carrying out surveys or giving advice at flu clinics.
If you want to get involved you should contact your practice directly.
