GP Patient Participation Groups – tips and tools

March 19, 2018

Continuing our work with Wessex Voices we recently planned and delivered an event for the good folk of Dorset on making the most of GP Patient Participation Groups.

The purpose of the conference was to:
  • Share information and knowledge about Patient Participation Groups (PPGs) and how they fit in to the bigger picture
  • Bring people together from PPGs across the county to share and exchange ideas and experiences on how to make PPGs successful
  • Enable people from PPGs to network and develop ongoing working relationships
  • Look at what is working well and what could be improved; and to provide an opportunity to access practical help and advice

Wessex Voices put together a great resource following the event including:

  • Opportunities for working with Healthwatch
  • Using social media
  • Widening participation in your PPG activities
  • Setting up a locality network
  • Running effective meetings
