Patient Participation & Friends Group (PPFG)


We have been fortunate at our Practice to have two very active and succesful patient groups, the Patient Participation Group (PPG) and the Friends Group.  These two groups are currently in the process of merging, to form a Patient Participation & Friends Group (PPFG).  We would like to express our sincere thanks to all of those people who have been and continue to be involved in the work of either of these groups. Click here for our original Friends Of Coltishall & Spixworth Surgeries page.


The original Patient Participation Group (PPG) was first developed in 2008. There are currently 12 people (patients and staff), who meet 3-4 times a year to work with our practice to provide practical support, encourage health initiatives and provide strategic input and advice. The group is based on a co-operation between the practice staff and patients. It is currently led by the Chairperson, Steve Kempson.


The PPG has contributed to the North Norfolk Commissioning group for local GP services, given very valuable feedback on services at our practice and improvements in patient care have resulted.  We anticipate that the newly formed PPFG will continue with this valuable work.


Patient Survey 


A summary and action plan from the 2017 PPG survey results is available here. Graphs showing a summary of the responses are at the end of the minutes of the January meeting which can be viewed here.


Following various feedback the PPG decided not to publish a survey for 2018. Thank you to all those who have completed questionnaires in the past - your feedback is always helpful!  Please contact the group if there is anything you would like taken forward.
