About the Patient Participation Group




Courtside Surgery has an active Patient Participation Group (PPG) and a Email Patient Participation Group (EPPG) and are members of NAPP (National Association for Patient Participation).

The PPG meet every 6-8 weeks from 7:00pm – 8:00pm at the surgery, usually on a Monday but for people who cannot, or do not want to attend meetings there is the EPPG.

As well as representing patient’s views the PPG organises special events focusing on different illnesses/diseases. These informal evenings, where healthcare professionals give talks and advice, are for anyone to attend.
