National Association For Patient Participation

As the national voice for patient participation in primary care, we are the umbrella body for Patient Participation Groups (PPGs).

Every GP Practice in England must have a PPG, & many in the rest of the UK do too.

We seek to:
- promote patients & PPGs as participants in decision-making in the NHS & in their own self-care
- provide support, guidance, networking & sharing of best practice to our members
- influence nationally, e. G. With NHS England & the Royal Colleges
- take part in research

Founded 1978
