A safe space to share your views

In 80% of GP surgeries in Enfield there is a Patient Participation Group (PPG).

Anyone registered to a GP practice who is over the age of 16, or who is the carer of a patient at the practice, can join.

Joining is an opportunity for patients, carers, and practice staff to meet and discuss practice issues and patient experience to help improve the service.

How to join your GP surgery's Patient Participation Group (PPG)

Contact your GP surgery

1.     Go to your GP surgery website and find the PPG joining form. You should also find PPG minutes and date of the next meeting.

2.     If the above isn't possible, just pop into or ring your surgery and ask practice staff to add you to the PPG list.
