Patient Representative Group (PRG)

The Patient Representative Group was formed in 2010.  If you wish to join the Committee, please ask reception for a form.

Atypical Patient Representative Group (PRG) brings together patients, GPs andstaff members from a GP practice (or group of practices) They meet regularly todiscuss issues relating to their practice and the services provided topatients.
Patient Representative Group(PRGs) are good for patients because:
They encourage patients to be moreresponsible for their own health

  • Patients know more about their GP practice and its staff members
  • Communication between patients and practicestaff improves
  • Patients have a chance to make suggestionsand ask questions
  • Local people can raise money to improve the facilities at their GP practice
  • Through links to NHS Walsall and the MyNHSWalsall membership scheme, PPG memberscan have their say on wider health issues as well.

Patient Representative Groups (PRGs) are good for practice staff members because:

  • GPs and their staff can work with patients toplan services which best meet the needs of the people who use those services
  • They can provide help and advice for patients on non-medical or social care issues.
  • Patients can help the practice to meet its targets and objectives
  • GPs and staff have an opportunity to share their ideas with patients.
  • They get closer to their community – even more important as GPs take on increasing responsibility for spending more ofthe NHS budget to plan and buy health services for local people.
