Other volunteer opportunities in the community

St Luke's PPG

St Luke's Patient Participation Group (PPG) are always looking for volunteers

The PPG is a very friendly group of patients who have common objectives to support our Practice to:

  • Provide a link between Practice staff and their patients.
  • Give patients a voice in the organisation of their care.
  • Provide two-way feedback to the Practice about patient needs, concerns and interests about any information which may affect their healthcare.
  • Act as a 'critical friend' that can be consulted on service, development and provision.
  • Assist the practice by arranging voluntary groups or support within the community.
  • Encourage and support Health Education activities within the Practice and promote preventative medicine.
  • Liaise with other local PPG's and be represented at meetings of Northampton Patient Engagement Group Meeting.

Members are asked to attend meetings about 6 times a year to give views and help develop the Practice. Generally, any registered patient from the surgery can be a member aged 16+, however the Practice does have a right to refuse an individual if it is considered in the best interests of the individual or Practice.
