PPG resources

Working with practices, PPGs and the PPG Network, we are building a library of tools and resources to help groups across the city.

The following resources can support people in their Patient Participation Groups (PPGs):

PPG Toolkit

We’ve worked with PPG members, primary care staff, and Primary Care Networks (PCNs) to create a PPG Toolkit.

The toolkit is a collection of resources, hints, and tips for GP practices and their PPGs. It is a freely available digital resource with a number of templates that can be tailored to each practice. We have made these templates available below as Word documents so you can customise them to suit your practice.

If you have any feedback or suggestions for a future version of the toolkit, please get in touch on 0113 221 7777 or email [email protected]
