What is the PPG Group?
Patient participation is a unique partnership between patients, GPs and their practice which is essential to and results in high quality and responsive care.
Patient Participation Groups (PPG’s) work in partnership with their practices to:
- Help patients to take more responsibility for their health.
- Contribute to the continuous improvement of services and quality of care
- Foster improved communication between the practice and its patient
- Provide practical support for the practice and help to implement change
The first PPG’s were established around 1972 by GPs inEnglandandWales. Since then the PPG movement has grown rapidly. Experience shows that successful practices and effective PPG’s go hand in hand.
PPG Youth What does it mean
PPG Youth refers to the distinct ideas, opinions, attitudes, knowledge, and actions of young people as a collective body. The term Youth Group often groups together a diversity of perspectives and experiences, regardless of backgrounds, identities, and cultural differences. Additional research has shown that engaging youth opinion is an essential element of effective organisational development among community and youth-serving organisations.
