In Somerset, there are approximately 60 Patient Participation Groups (PPGs) based in GP surgeries throughout the county and made up of patients and practice staff.  They meet regularly and act as “critical friends” to their respective surgery, looking at how the surgery currently works, setting objectives for the coming year and agreeing how they can help to achieve those objectives.  

Some of the groups are virtual which means that members are able to take part online without attending the surgery.

Contact your local GP surgery for details of your PPG and get involved in shaping NHS health services within Somerset.
