Patient Participation Group

We would like to know how we can improve our service to you and how you perceive the Practice and our staff.

Please note you must be a patient or carer of a registered patient at Gower Street Practice to join our PPG.

The Patient Participation Group meets quarterly.


  • To foster effective communication between the practice and its registered patients
  • To encourage patient engagement in the development of the practice

The outcome of every meeting will be displayed on the patient information board and on this website.

Alternatively, please leave your name and contact details with reception for the attention of Marcia Menichetti, Practice Manager. In particular we are currently interested in welcoming a student representative to the group.

Please be aware that places in the group are limited, however if you are unable to join you are still welcome to suggest topics for discussion in the group.

Please note that the PPG cannot become involved in matters of a specifically medical or clinical nature.
