PPG Chairs and West Kent CCG’s Chair celebrate PPG Awareness Week – and over a year of being formally established - at the West Kent PPG Chair Group meeting held on 2nd June
This week, 2 to 9 June, is National Patient Participation Group Week.
The week celebrates the contribution and support that patient participation groups (PPGs) provide to GP practices across the country.
For more than 40 years, many GP practices have been working in mutual partnership with their patients, ensuring the voice of the patient population is heard. West Kent has 58 PPGs which give people a great opportunity to influence GP services.
NHS West Kent Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) would like to take this opportunity to thank all members of the PPGs for giving up their time to work with practices.
Getting involved and influencing healthcare at a local, regional or national level is important to make sure that the services reflect the needs of the people using them.
