Patient Participation Group (PPG)
About the PPG: Improving the Patient Experience
NHS Central London: Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is a consortium of 24 GP practices in Westminster of which King's College Health Centre is a member. The CCG Patient Participation Group is made of patient representatives from each member practice. They discuss developments and change occurring at local and national level. They are also involved in decision making, open discussion in planned changes for improvement and procurement of services.
King's College Health Centre PPG offers a route for patients to provide feedback on our current services, and opinion on prospective future services meeting quarterly at user group meetings. We also regularly arrange to meet at a practice level to address any suggestions and feedback on areas of development and service delivery.
This provides an excellent opportunity for students to understand how the wider NHS and primary care service works and to effect change for future delivery of care working in close collaboration with care givers- i.e. the Doctors and Nurses.
If you are interested in joining the King's College Health Centre Patient Participation Group please inform our reception and we will get in touch with you.
