- To promote self help as a process to enable patients to develop a mutual interest in their primary health care at the surgery.
- To provide grass roots forums in the community for patients, careres and health service staff which will have benefits for all.
- Encourage effective communication between patients and health professionals.
It has been involved in

The PPG is currently looking for new members to join the group. Should you be interested, please email email@example.com or contact the Practice Manager.
