Patient Participation Group

The Swanage Medical Practice Patient Participation Group (PPG) is made up of patients registered with the Practice who have volunteered to work with the Practice Manager and the GPs to help improve and shape local health services.

This small independent group, which used to be known as The Friends of the Practice, meets regularly and provides a way for patients to get involved with the Practice and to influence decisions about local services. Members are also kept informed about the Practice.

The Group provides a forum to identify the needs of patients and to hear their views - the aim is to ensure the views and interests of all patients registered with the Practice are represented. It’s all about making sure patients are put first.

If you are interested in becoming a member of the PPG or would like more information about the group contact the Practice Manager.

Terms of Reference

The overall aim of the PPG is to develop a positive and constructive relationship between the Practice, its patients and the community it serves, thereby helping to improve and shape local health services.
