Patient Participation Group

Welcome to our Patient Participation Group

What is the Patient Participation Group (PPG)?

The PPG comprises of volunteer patients registered with the Practice who work in partnership with practice staff and GP's. The PPG provides feedback to the Practice which helps to improve services and helps achieve high quality and responsive care. 

It is an essential and valued part of all our Practices and helps us to understand what the patient experience is really like and how we can best achieve any changes and improvements identified. Our group meet approximately 10 times a year to hear about current news at the Practice, current challenges and developments for the future.

Now we have become part of Symphony Healthcare Services (SHS), we have set up a new group to work closely with our patients. We have had a fantastic response to our new PPG launch and have a great team of enthusiasts to put forward ideas, suggestions and ask questions on behalf of all patients to support communication. We have a nominated Chair and Secretary who determine the agenda and distribute the minutes of each meeting.

All patients registered with the Practice have the opportunity and are encouraged to join the PPG and if after reading a little about us you would like to join, please contact our PPG via

If you have any feedback regarding the Practice website please do complete the feedback form linked below. This will really help us to ensure that the site is and remains fit for purpose.

Please note that whilst a PPG member can take forward a patient's concerns, they cannot deal with a complaint. A complaint must be directed through the Hamdon Practice Complaints Procedure.
