About the PPG

We believe that patients should be involved as much as they want to be in every decision about their care: what care they want and how and where they want it delivered. This will mean patients and service users and health and care professionals genuinely making decisions in partnership.

The NHS Constitution

States that patients have the right to be involved locally in their care. Kingswood Medical Group need members for our PPG.
