What is the Waterloo Patient Participation Group?

We are patients just like you...

Patient Participation Groups (PPGs) are groups of active volunteer patients that work in partnership with practice staff and GPs. This unique partnership between patients and their practices is essential to achieving high quality and responsive care.  Groups meet face to face with practice staff at mutually agreed intervals.

Virtual PPGs now also exist operating alongside the established PPG enabling a dialogue with the larger proportion of the patient population through email and online surveys. To view the full document click here.
