Those you live with also need to self-isolate for 14 days. This will help protect others in our community.

Or call 111 if you have no online access. And here is the Isolation Note for your employer. 

Click here to be clear about what "social distancing" is - we all need to be doing this now, especially if you are over 70, have an underlying health condition or are pregnant.

Patient Participation Group (PPG)

  • Our Patient Participation Group

    The Dartmouth Patient Participation Group is a group which aims to help Dartmouth Medical Practice focus on the needs and aspirations of it's patients for the services it provides. We are very lucky to have a very active PPG who act as a criticial friend of the surgery, focused on the patient experience of not only the surgery itself, but the wider local health community. 

    The group aims to discuss important issues in a positive way, aiming to give guidance to the medical practice about the needs of its patients.

    If you have a suggestion or issue you would like the Medical Practice to consider, please contactinfo@dartpatients.org.uk

    The Patient Participation Group is not set up to consider individual complaints. If you have a specific complaint against the practice, please contact the practice manager, or use the form provided in the Patient Toolbox section of this website.

  • What is a PPG?

    A Patient Participation Group (PPG) is generally used to describe a patient group based in a GP practice. It is led by patients but run in partnership with the GP practice to:

    • Give views as a patient on how services can be improved and receive feedback on those views
    • Help patients to be more informed and responsible for their own health
    • Build a positive working relationship with the practice
    • Meet other patients and share experiences
    • Support the practice to help patients to stay well
    • Help to improve communication between practice and patients

    Each PPG is unique. It makes decisions on its own structure, priorities and work programme. As it acts as a bridge between patients and the GP practice, it is important that each PPG has a broad base of patient involvement and views. We will try to make our PPG as representative of our practice population as possible, and encourage all patients to get involved.
