Patient Participation Group - Welcome

Would you like to become involved in decisions about the services the Marlow Medical Group provides now and in the future?

The Marlow Medical Group Patient Participation Group is eager to ensure that our patients are actively involved in deciding how the health services they use should develop.

The aim of the Patient Participation Group is to give patients, GPs and practice staff an opportunity to meet, to exchange ideas and to keep you informed of the latest developments within the health service and primary care. Feedback of your experiences will also help us to improve the services we offer.

You will be invited to attend our Patient Participation Group meetings which are held twice yearly. We may also occasionally contact you to ask you to complete a survey or to try out a new service. You decide how often and when you would like to respond and it is not compulsory to attend any of the meetings.

Patient Participation Groups are invaluable for patients and practices alike. As a patient, the group allows you to:

  • Offer feedback on the patient perspective.
  • Help the practice make the most of its resources.
  • Improve communication.
  • Help promote good health and self-care.
  • Influence decisions about which services are provided.
  • Offer practical support to the practice.

PPGs can also develop to influence the wider NHS, most notably the decisions that are made on behalf of patients about the services that are to be available to them.
