Joining the Patient Participation Group (PPG) at your GP practice

Request to join your PPG, there should be an option to do this on the practice website, if not, ask at reception.

Most PPGs are looking for people to volunteer to join. Here’s our advice on the hows and whys.

Expect to wait a few weeks, but do not be afraid to ask how long you should expect to wait before hearing something from the practice.

When you do get to speak to somebody from the PPG they may ask if you have a particular reason or special interest in joining. This is your opportunity to say that you are interested in women’s health and, specifically, raising awareness around the menopause.
