Patient Participation Group

PPG Group - July 2015

The Eric Moore Partnership Medical Practice was one of the very first practices to have a Patient Participation Group (PPG) established formally in Warrington. We are lucky enough to have a dedicated PPG whose role is to work alongside the practice as "Patient Partners" giving the practice real time support and feedback on current and future services and developments.

The PPG is an incredibly active group under the leadership of its current Chair Abdulla Taleb. In addition to supporting the local patients and the practice with major decisions such as redesigning and rebuilding the new Medi-Centre, the PPG also comes up and delivers new innovative suggestions based on patient surveys that it conducts regularly, its participation in future planning of health services locally.

There is never a dull day at the PPG meetings for our practice.

The PPG have an office and meeting space provided within the practice and the admin support to the PPG is the Patient Experience Co-Ordinator Kelly Pendlebury. Kelly can be contacted on

What is a vPRG?

We have recruited over 200 of our patients whom we will send a few brief surveys to complete online each year. This group will represent the diversity of our practice population.

What is the aim?

We will use your results from the surveys to help understand and plan the priority areas for the practice to develop in the future. These priority areas can then be explored and we would ask a wider audience for their opinions on the areas YOU see as important.

No – we will use email to communicate and produce on-line surveys for you to complete. We do not intend to meet face-to-face as we feel a virtual group will allow a wider range of our patients to participate.

If you are interested in taking part please send an email to including your name and date of birth and quote ‘vPRG’. Do not use this email for any other purpose – we cannot reply to medical problems.
