Patient Participation Group (PPG terms of reference)

The Patients Participation Group (PPG) is a voluntary group made up of Jenner Health Centre patients which acts as a link between the patients and  the  Practice  to feed up  patient health related issues and to publicise  information via our notice board. It has also been very successful in raising funds for the practice, having  raised over £5000 for equipment since its formation in March 2011.

The Jenner Health Centre is part of  the  Greater Peterborough  Local  Commissioning  Group (LCG) which is part of the Cambridge & Peterborough  Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG). The former Borderline LCG, made up of 10 GP Practices between Peterborough, Cambridge  and  Northampton, of which we were a member, joined with Peterborough LCG on 1st April 2016 to form Greater Peterborough LCG covering  29 practices.

The PPG meets Bi – Monthly on Wednesday evenings at the Jenner Health Centre normally at 1900 hrs. Normal meetings discuss items raised by patients, formulate social and fundraising activities and analyse/compile the Patient Survey forms. There is always at least 1 GP  and the Practice Manager at each PPG meeting. Special meetings are also arranged with speakers from  various  regional patient support groups eg  Alzheimers  Society, Epilepsy, AgeUK etc. Any items which are causing concern among patients can be raised at the PPG forum which meets  monthly , where issues are discussed by reps from each of the PPGs in the former  Borderline LCG. This forum will continue to meet in its present format until September 2016, when the future makeup of the Greater Peterborough PPG forum will be decided.  

The members of the committee are following the AGM held on Wednesday last week are as follows:-  As you may remember Gary Steward and myself had to stand down as chairman and secretary respectively of the PPG committee as demanded by the PPG constitution. This states that an officer can hold his or her appointment for a period of 3 years only.  There was a reluctance by those present to take on the responsibilities and work of those roles however the positions have been filled, although there has also been a reorganisation of the duties of those roles.
 
Gary has become the Jenner Representative on the Patient Forum.
Jan Sharman has become the chairman of the committee.
Tracey Sharman has taken on the role of secretary.  You can contact Tracey on her email address jennerhealthppg@gmail.com.  Please note that Tracey is in full time employment and is therefore not available for telephone calls. 
My contact details remain the same jsharman76@btinternet.com and I can be contacted on 01733 202782 if you need to discuss any PPG matters.
 
We want to raise the profile of the group and encourage as many patients as possible to join with us in order to fully represent the views of all patients in this practice.
Regards
Jan Sharman
Jenner PPG (chairman)

If any patients are interested  in taking a more active part in the PPG  or require more  information, please contact Jan Sharman.
