PPG (Patient Participation Group)

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic and to ensure the safety of our patients our PPG group is now being ran virtually.

Our group is set up on a private PPG page via Facebook. You can request to become a member via the practice by calling reception or find us on Facebook by searching for Dalston Medical Group PPG. You can then follow the link that says request to become a member. This is a completely private group and only members can see the chats.

We will be holding a face to face meeting once a year and if you feel like you would rather be involved in this than the virtual meetings please let us know and we can add your name to our list.

The role of the PPG includes:

• being a critical friend to the practice • advising the practice on the patient perspective and providing insight into the responsiveness and quality of services • encouraging patients to take greater responsibility for their own and their family’s health • carrying out research into the views of those who use the practice• organising health promotion events and improving health literacy • regular communication with the patient population.

If you would like to be part of our PPG group please contact reception or find our Facebook page as above.
