Patient Participation Group

The Aims of the Patient Participation Group

SJW's friendly Patient Participation Group (PPG) meets every 3-4 months - here are the aims of our group.

All patients are welcome to join SJW's PPG - if you're interested in joining the PPG or attending our next meeting on Microsoft Teams. Please email us at You can also contact the PPG Chair Stephen Wood by this email address.

If you’re a patient at St John’s Way Medical Centre, please join the Patient Participation Group. We are a friendly forum that meets three/four times a year (currently online). 
Our aims are to support and improve the practice by connecting the local community with SJW clinicians/admin staff. It’s a place to ask questions, make suggestions and hear directly from your GPs.

If you can't come to meetings, there are other ways you can join in... eg, by telling us what health matters are important to you, by sending us your Agenda items, by sharing your skills (we want to set up a "virtual" internet group so why not email us if you're interested and let us know if you can offer your help, ideas and expertise).
