Patient Participation Group

Friends of Annandale Patient Participation Group (PPG)

The Annandale PPG is an active group of volunteer patients who work in partnership with the Practice to represent the wider patient population by: 
  • strengthening the relationship between patients and the Practice, involving patients in ensuring an appropriate breadth and quality of services, and improving communications between the Practice and patients
  • acting as a critical friend to the Practice, providing a sounding board for how the Practice operates and is run from the patients’ perspective, particularly as changes are planned and introduced, and as issues crop up
  • making suggestions prompted by patients’ everyday life experiences and as patients of the Practice, and to be an advocate for patients’ preferences
  • offering practical help to support the Practice’s services
  • engaging in wider NHS forums, such as Potters Bar Primary Care, and wider consultative NHS committees which include the Potters Bar area
  • encouraging patient self-help and mutual support initiatives
The PPG role is coordinated through a PPG Committee chaired by a PPG member. The Committee meets four times a year and  includes a Partner, the Practice Manager and a member of the administration staff.  You can read the minutes of our meetings either on the website or by requesting a copy to be sent to you via e mail and if you would like to contact the committee with any ideas or thoughts about what, as a patient, you would like the PPG to address please contact the PPG Committee Chair Harvey Ward by e-mail (harvey.ward@gmail.com) or by phone (079 1347 6202).
