Patient Participation Group
Patient Participation Group (PPG) is normally made of practice staff and patients that are representative of the practice population. In some cases, the PPG could be facilitated by patients with no practice involvement. The main aim of the PPG is to ensure that patients are involved in decisions about the range and quality of services provided and, over time, commissioned by the practice.
Using the PPG, GP practices are encouraged to promote the proactive engagement of patients and to seek views from practice patients through the use of local practice surveys. The outcomes of the engagement and the views of patients are published below if this practice has a PPG.
If you are interested in becoming involved in this group. Please contact:

Traffic Notice
As you will be aware the Highways team carried out a number of surface dressings across the borough in 2016/17 that have needed further attention. As a consequence of this, Hall Lane, Aspull will be the first road to be retreated and a closure is planned to carry out these works from
19th – 21st February.
Advance warning signs have been put in place and a diversion will be signed prior to the closure.
The road will be resurfaced between Mayfair Drive and Pennington Green Lane. All local residents will be informed of the work by letter and our bulletin and social media pages are being updated with the information.
