​​Southwark PPG Network (SPPGN)

The SPPGN was established by local patients, GP practice managers and the CCG patient engagement team. This group of people formed the SPPGN Steering Group which supports the development and delivery of the yearly plan for the SPPGN. ​

The purpose of the SPPGN is to bring practice staff and patients from across Southwark together to develop solutions to common issues faced by PPGs and to share good practice. The network communicates via a range of tools including quarterly face to face meeting and an online forum.  The CCG has developed a top tips for PPGs as part of national PPG Awareness Week in 2018.   

The SPPGN is open to all patients and practice staff in Southwark who are current PPG members or have an interest in joining their PPG.
