Who We Are
General Practices have a responsibility to involve patients in relevant issues relating to the practice and to respond appropriately to patients' views and experiences.
In May 2015 the surgery set up a new Patient Participation Group, (PPG) developing from an earlier virtual group. CDPPG is voluntary group organised by a committee of patient, surgery and local pharmacy representatives. The committee meets on a regular basis.

During 2015-2016 patient representation on the committee will be made up of volunteers involved in the previous virtual group. Our goal this year is to establish an active PPG. Elections for patient representatives will take place in 2016 and appointments made at the 2016 AGM.
If you have an item you would like to raise, please contact us using the email listed in the “contacts” section. Your email will go straight to a PPG representative and your item will be included on the agenda at the next PPG meeting. In the interests of patient confidentiality, all patient ID details are removed from the email text before it is presented to the surgery team.
The PPG is run by patient volunteers and we aim to notify all patients of the outcome of their escalation by email, within seven days of the next PPG Committee meeting.
