Patient Participation Group (PPG)

Patient Participation Group (PPG)

The Riverside Practice PPG has now been running for over 20 years. 

All patients registering with the Riverside Practice are invited to be part of the PPG.

We meet monthly and produce a bi-monthly newsletter (NEWSLINK).

Our main purpose is to support patients. 

We do this in a number of ways:

  • Feeding back to the Practice issues raised by patients
  • Making suggestions to improve the patient experience of primary care.
  • Fundraising for equipment etc.
  • Patient Surveys to gain patient feedback
  • Promote health education
  • Recognising retiring/leaving staff
  • Helping at flu clinics and at other times as and when required

We meet on the last Monday of every month, (excluding Bank Holidays) at 4:30pm in the Health Education Room at the Riverside Practice.

The PPG wishes to ensure that all registered patient demographics are represented as much as possible, we would therefore love to meet anyone wishing to join the group.

So, if you would like to become a member of this very important patient supporting group, please contact the Chair of the PPG, Jacqui Drewery on 01354 652413 / email:
