Our PPG currently has 8 committee members, of whom most are of retirement age. The group meets quarterly. To invite patients to get involved, posters were put up in the surgery and invitations were extended to the narrowboat community and also to members of the mums and toddlers group. We have attempted to make the group representative of the age demographic of our patient list, but involvement comes more willingly from senior patients, who can draw on their experience and perhaps have more time to give to the group. The practice learns the views and recommendations of the PPG at the quarterly meetings.
