Patient Participation Group (PPG)

Sunniside Surgery PPG is a group of volunteer patients, carers and practice staff who meet together to discuss and support the running of their GP practice.

A PPG group looks at the services the practice offers, patient experience and how improvements can be made for the benefit of patients and the practice.

If you would like to come along to a Patient Forum and share your ideas of how Sunniside Surgery can move forward, then please email and you will be invited to our next meeting. Please include in your email if you would like these meetings to be held online or in person.

We would really look forward to seeing you there.

Getting Your View

The group would like to contact patients on occasion by email and/or text so that they can obtain the views of the widest group of patients possible. We would like to obtain your email address and mobile phone number to do this. Please complete the Patient Contact Form to provide your consent for this.
