This week, 4th-9th June is Patient Participation Awareness Week.
PPG Awareness Week aims 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.
The CCG have been working closely with our practice Patient Participation Groups (PPG) from across South Tees to learn more about their work.
Dr Walker, Chair of NHS South Tees CCG said ‘We are very keen to do what we can to raise the profile of patient participation groups recognising the really valuable role they have with helping surgeries to gain feedback on the services they provide as well as helping the practices to keep their patients informed with newsletters, service improvement suggestions, help with health promotion and flu campaigns amongst many other things!’
The CCG have created a short video showcasing PPGs. Watch the video here:
