Patient reference groups (PRGs) are being set up by many local GP practices to give you the opportunity to contribute to the continuing improvement of your practice.
You will be able to engage with your local practice and support them in developing the services that they provide. For information on whether your GP practice has a group and how to join, please contact the practice direct. A list of member practices can be found here.
Find out more about the benefits of joining your practice PRG here.
We also have a Patient Reference Group Network (PRGN), where practice representatives come together to discuss issues that matter to them and provide input into the commissioning process. This group meets up quarterly and is chaired by a member of our Governing Body who is also a lay person with responsibility for public and patient involvement. The PRGN encourages a two-way sharing of information between patients, practice reference groups and the CCG. Terms of Reference for this group can be found here.
