About the Patient Participation Group


The Barn Surgery Patients Participation Group (PPG) is looking to recruit members to the Committee who are able, together with the Doctors and Practice staff, to encourage:

  • Improved communication between GP’s and patients.
  • Discussion of topics of mutual interest to the practice and the patients.
  • Improvements within the GP practice through the adoption of a change in practice or structure.
  • An increase in patient satisfaction with the service they receive.

The Committee usually meets four times a year, normally on a Monday, late afternoon/early evening, at the Surgery.

There is an annual general meeting once per year, normally at St Andrew’s Church Hall, Ferring, at which a topic dealing with a designated health subject is covered with specialist speakers.

If you feel that you are able to join the Committee and to work on ensuring that the Barn Surgery Patients Participation Group is relevant to the patients’ requirements then please:

However, please note that the Patient Participation Group Committee is not a vehicle for individuals to voice personal interests, resolve personal issues or obtain personal medical services.
