Patient Participation Group (PPG)
What is a PPG?
A PPG is a group entirely made up of registered patients who come together to work with their GP practice to help improve services. PPGs are based on co-operation between practice staff and patients.
What can a PPG do?
Since its formation in 2017, the PPG has provided great insight into the experience of SMG from the patients' viewpoint. As a result improvements have been made to the practice, including an addition to the patient toilets and installation of a new electric door to the waiting room.
Upcoming PPG Events:
Easter Event - 20.04.19

We take all suggestions seriously and all feedback is recorded and reviewed by staff.
Friends and Family Test (FFT)
‘The NHS Friends and Family Test (FFT) was created to help service providers and commissioners understand whether their patients are happy with the service provided, or where improvements are needed. It is a quick and anonymous way to give your views after receiving care or treatment across the NHS.’
