Patient Participation Groups (PPG) also known as Patient Reference Groups (PRG) are a route to which patients can advise General Practices on topics that truly matter to them and to help identify and resolve problems on wide patient interests.

Patient Participation Groups (PPGs) became a contract requirement for GP practices in England from April 2016. Each GP Practice in Sheffield is therefore required to have a representative group established and functioning over the course of this year. 

If you are interested in joining the Patient Participation Group at your GP Practice, please contact the Practice Manager directly.

You can find resources for Patient Participation Groups here.
