Many people feel a little nervous when it comes to getting involved in healthcare. However, you don’t need to be medically trained to tell us what you think of the NHS services available in your part of North West Surrey.

Most of our GP member practices now have a PPG up and running – an opportunity for patients to work with their GP practice to share thoughts and ideas, help with specific pieces of work that call for a patient perspective and act as a communicator between the practice and their community. PPGs represent their practice population through North West Surrey’s Patient and Public Engagement Forum (PPEF), which in turn is represented on the CCGs Governing Body by William McKee (Governing Body lay member and PPEF Chair).

Your views really do impact on the commissioning decisions that we make. But we can only listen if you tell us.

To find out more about the PPG at your GP practice, speak to your GP practice manager.

If you’d like to set up a PPG or would like more information on engagement opportunities through the CCG, please contact the Communications and Engagement Team on 01372 232 463 or SMS text phone on 07880 091328 or email
