The Patient Participation Group (PPG) Forum supports the development of improving primary care, as well as wider health issues, through understanding GP practice level issues from a patient’s perspective.

The forum provides a recognised mechanism, where patients can represent the views and experiences of their PPG, as well as challenging NHS Birmingham and Solihull on important issues. It also provides a direct link into, and acts as a conduit between PPGs and the Primary Care Commissioning Committee, within the recognised NHS Birmingham and Solihull governance structure.

There is a terms of reference in place for the forum; this confirms the NHS Birmingham and Solihull's partnership approach to developing the agenda, and ensures that members are providing updates to their PPGs after the meetings.

Do you attend the PPG forum? Would you like to make any suggestions or give feedback on the meetings? We’d love to hear your views.
