Patient Participation Group (PPG)

Deddington Health Centre Patient Participation Group (PPG) is looking for new members!

Who are we? The Patient Participation Group (PPG) is made up of a limited number of registered patients at Deddington Health Centre. Our main aim is to facilitate good relations between the practice and patients by communicating patient experience, interests and concerns and providing feedback or suggestions on current procedures and any proposed new developments or projects.

We support the DHC team in keeping all patients informed of what is happening at the practice and work with the GPs and practice management in a partnership model. It is important to stress that this is not a forum for personal complaints nor the discussion of individual medical problems, Deddington Health Centre already provide procedures for these.

We post news items on the screens in the surgery waiting area and contribute to the practice newsletters. We meet when required, communicate online which each other and the practice and have an Annual General Meeting each year where officers are appointed and we discuss any major issues or projects to ensure DHC maintains its position as one of the best in the area.

Interested in joining us? You don’t need any specialist medical knowledge to join the PPG, and it won’t take up a huge amount of your time. We work as a ‘Virtual’ Patient Participation Group using email or other online media.

If you wish to join or would like further information please email admin.deddington@nhs.net and we will be in touch.
