Making health and social care services work better, for everyone

The National Association of Patient Participation (NAPP) set up Patient Participation Group (PPG) Awareness Week to promote:

  • The role and benefits of PPGs to patients, the public and health professionals
  • To create more understanding of the value of true patient participation
  • To promote the support available from NAPP


So what are PPGs?

All GP Practices must have a PPG to help their practice reflect on what they do, how they work and how they might become more effective. They are made up of volunteer patients that aim to represent your voice and the services provided by the practice are responsive to patient’s needs. You can read more about PPGs here.


Talk to us about PPGs

At Healthwatch Warwickshire we are interested in how we work together with, and support the work of, PPGs in Warwickshire in order to help strengthen the patient voice at this level. For instance we have previously held, and continue to hold, our standing conference for patient voice.

Are you a member of your PPG?  Have you used your PPG to feed back to your Practice? Now, during Patient Participation (PPG) Awareness week, we are asking for you to get in touch to let us know how PPGs are working for you- both during the current pandemic but also  more generally.


Get in touch, your views and experiences are important to us.
