Patient Participation Group

Highgate Group Practice has an active patient participation group both virtually and face-to-face.

We would like to know how we can improve our service to you and how you perceive the Practice and our staff.

To help us with this, we have set up a Patient Participation Group (both virtual and Face to Face) so that you can have your say.

We will ask the virtual members of this group some questions from time to time, such as what you think about our opening times or the quality of the care or service you have received. We will contact you via text and keep our surveys succinct so it shouldn’t take too much of your time.

Our face-to-face volunteer committee representatives of our Patient Participation Group (PPG) will commit to participating in our face-to-face PPG meetings held twice a year.

If you are interested, please complete the below form, and we will randomly select 15 patients from various demographics to join the committee. Your dedication to this role will be highly appreciated, and we look forward to working together to improve our healthcare services.

We aim to gather around 15 patients from as broad a spectrum as possible to get a truly representative sample. We need young people, workers, retirees, people with long-term conditions and people from non-British ethnic groups.
