All GPs in Somerset have a Patient Participation Group (PPGs). PPGs work in partnership with their GP practice and are vital in ensuring that the patient voice is heard. Groups work in different ways, some meet in person, others communicate with their practice online – all are keen to welcome and involve new members.

PPGs 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 needing to visit the surgery.
