Patient Participation Group

About our PPG and how to join

The Barcellos Family Practice Patient Participation Group (PPG) is formed of people from a variety of backgrounds, who each bring something different to the group. Its members are volunteer patients who work with the managers and clinicians at the Practice to support and promote the best possible health care for all patients.

Our Patient Participation Group works with the Practice to help staff to improve the quality of healthcare and response to patient needs.  For more about who we are and what we do, follow this link to download and view a copy of the PPG Terms of Reference>>
