Patient Participation Group Network

PPGs are helping shape health services across the region by bringing the views of patients to the CCG. 

The local PPG Network, made up of representatives of PPGs across the region, works as a forum for sharing best practise and feeding back on NHS services. The aim is to help ensure that the voice of patients is at the heart of the CCG’s decision making processes.
