Every GP practice in the country now has a patient participation group (PPG) which you can get involved in. You can find more information about how to get involved with these at your GP practice. Many GP practices also have the details of their PPG on their website.

There is no set way for how PPGs work, they depend on the needs of patients who are registered with their GP practice. Its aim is to make sure that the GP practice puts patients, and improving health and wellbeing, at the centre of the work that they do.

Just some of the things that PPGs get involved in include:

The Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven Patient Network brings together members of PPGs from practices across the area to work together, share ideas and resources, and feed in views and experiences to the CCG. To get involved with the network, to find out more about PPGs or ask about other ways to get involved, email

You can find out more about our engagement activity on our annual reports page, which gives a snapshot of our priorities, performance, and how we involve people in our work.

Training for patient networks and patient participation groups
