Sid Valley Practice PPG

Find out more about us and view minutes of our meetings here

Sidmouth patient participation group (PPG) is a group of volunteer patients who work in partnership with Sid Valley Practice. This unique partnership between patients and the practice is essential for high quality and responsive care.

From the 1st April 2015 it became a requirement in the GP contract for all practices to have a PPG. The PPG has evolved since this time and we hope soon to set up a virtual group.

Patient engagement facilitates services to take account of the views and experiences of all patients using them. The PPG is a forum for the practice to voice ideas and concerns and also for patients to suggest positive ideas for change.

We would like to encourage all communities, groups, genders, ages, ethnicities and disabilities to join and represent patients of Sid Valley Practice.

If you have any queries please email acting Chair, Cathy Gunnell,

IMPORTANT do not contact us about any personal or medical matter or clinical complaint. In these circumstances you should contact the surgery directly in the usual way.
