Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Patient Participation Group?
This will be a small group of patients who have agreed that the practice may ask them some questions from time to time, such as what they think about the quality of the service the practice provides. This PPG will also help decide the topics that are asked about in the practice’s Patient Surveys.
How much time would I need to give?
The practice will usually contact the members of the PPG via email, but we also post information around the practice and, where possible, via the Leys News paper. Questions will be kept short and “to-the-point,” so it should only take a few minutes of your time on each occasion. We are not likely to contact you more than five times per year.
Who is needed?
We would like to recruit the PPG from as broad a range of backgrounds as possible. This is so we get a group that truly reflects the variety of patients at the practice. For example, we need young people, workers, retirees, people with a variety of disabilities or long-term health problems, those from diverse ethnic backgrounds, patients who use the surgery regularly and those who don’t, as well as the housebound etc.
How do I join?

What happens next?

We very much look forward to hearing from you !
Please note that medical information should not be sent via email.
What if I sign up and then change my mind about being in the PPG?
We'll be sorry to lose you, of course, but opting out of the PPG is very straight forward. Just email Leys.PPG@nhs.net with "PPG no thanks" in the subject line or drop a note into reception.
