The Lakes Practice Patient Participation Group (PPG)
Open to all patients from The Lakes Medical Practice

PPG's are generally made up of a group of patients and staff members. They meet on a regular basis to discuss the services on offer, and how improvements can be made for the benefit of patients and the practice.

The Lakes Medical Practice PPG was set up in early 2010. Our inaugural formal meeting was March 2010 when a constitution was agreed and members were voted in to the roles of Chair, Treasurer and Secretary. The PPG is run as a charitable group.

They have held educational sessions on resuscitation, women’s health and chronic breathing problems and been involved with the patient satisfaction survey. Future plans include looking at access to healthcare and ways of improving the health and well being of all our patients.
