Patient Participation Group

National Association for Patient Participation

Who are we?

Leighton Road Surgery (LRS) has had a Patient Participation Group (PPG) since 2003.

We are an independent group of surgery users, from different backgrounds, who care about the way our surgery works and the service it can provide. Click here to see a full list of our current members.

We are affiliated to the National Association of Patient Participation Groups (NAPP) www.napp.org.uk which is the umbrella organisation for Patient Participation Groups (PPGs) within primary care.

What do we do?

We meet every six weeks and our meetings are attended by one of the partners and/or the Practice Manager.

We raise issues which have caused concern or worry for patients as well as those which have been successful and  helpful. The PPG does not handle individual complaints.

We work with the Practice to identify priorities for patients, and contribute to proposals for any improvements or changes.

We talk to patients, at both Grovebury Road and Leighton Road, to get their opinions and feelings as well as conduct Patient surveys. Results of surveys are published on this page. 

Why do we do it?

Leighton Road Surgery is unique and we want to help it meet all our needs. We form a link between the patients and the Practice with a view to making a useful contribution to the improvement of existing services and to help the Practice to develop new services to meet the needs of patients.

PPG Meeting Dates

The PPG Members will meet on the following dates:
  • Tuesday 12th December - 15.30


We aim to produce a Newsletter every quarter to keep patients updated with news and information. These will be available online, with hard copies at Reception at both sites.
