Patient Participation Group

Since 2011/12 we have been able to establish Redwood practice Patient Participation Groups as an on-line Patient Reference Group (PRG) and then in 2012/13 also a Face-to-Face Redwood practice (PPG) was established. The purpose of running both groups was to actively involve our patients in discussions about the range and quality of the services provided by us. The Patient Participation Scheme aims to promote the proactive engagement of patients through the use of local patient survey with a view to improving the services provided by The Redwood practice.

Through our PPGs we would gain a better understanding of the views of the patients registered with us and to fulfil the Patient Participation DES requirements as outlined in this report. We attempted to do this by meeting to discuss issues and concerns raised by our PPG. Most of our members from last year’s PPG have participated this year and in addition we have managed to recruit 4 new members making it a total of 9 member group.
