There are lots of ways you can become involved, including joining your local GP Practice Patient Participation Group (PPG). We actively engage with all PPGs in Wigan Borough. This includes listening and asking questions. Our "Continuous Engagement Cycle" posted below shows how we engage with local PPGs:
PPGs work with their GP Practice to help improve the service that patients get. Working with the GP Practice is their main purpose, but they also help us understand what patients need, want and think about services, from broad topics like quality, to specific issues like A&E attendance or how we treat conditions like asthma.
To join your local PPG and start having your voice heard, speak to the Practice Manager at your GP surgery.
At the beginning of 2017 we asked local PPGs to complete a survey to find out how we might best support local groups. The following 'You Said, We Listened' document describes the feedback we got and what we have done with it.
