Patient Participation Group (PPG)

Trent Meadows and Stretton Patient Participation Group (PPG)

We are a group of volunteer patients who are working with the Practice to support, develop and improve patient services, helping with questionnaires and surveys, trying to fill in some of the gaps and by signposting our members to available support services.

Being part of a PPG provides an opportunity:

  • for patients and Practice staff to meet and explore issues arising from patient complaints and patient surveys  
  • to provide regular updates to patients
  • to support healthcare awareness
  • to engage with the local communities and ensure the PPG is truly reflective of the Practice population

We meet every other month at Trent Meadows Primary Care Centre during which we host occasional health-related talks from local healthcare providers.

Our meeting dates are announced in advance in the reception areas, on notice boards, and on the Practice’s Facebook page

Maybe you would like to just be a ‘virtual member’ and receive occasional e-mail information about the group and its activities.

PPG Talks and Presentations

The PPG has, over the past years, organised a number of talks and information events regarding health and well-being that have been of interest to our members. 

In the past these have included the following topics:

  • Diabetes
  • Macmillan Cancer Support
  • The NHS
  • Voluntary welfare and charity groups
  • General healthcare

One of our most successful talks was about Prostate Cancer. We had no idea that it would be so popular and, in fact, we had to organise three separate presentations to be able to accommodate almost 150 people who had registered to attend.

Getting Involved

If you are a patient at Trent Meadows, and you would like to actively help your Practice, we would love to meet you in person at one of our meetings or events:
