Patient Participation Group

Welcome to the

Mid Sussex Health Care

Patient Participation Group


All Mid Sussex Health Care patients are automatically members of this Group and their feedback, views and suggestions are always welcome.

A small committee enables the PPG to function. All members of the PPG committee are volunteers, with a wide range of experience within and beyond the NHS. Our primary aim is to enhance communication between patients and the practice so that healthcare services can be adapted to best meet the needs of the patients.

Please note that the PPG does not discuss medical issues and does not have access to patients’ medical records.

If you would like to be kept informed of our activities and to receive useful updates about health care services, or want to receive an acknowledgement of feedback, please provide us with your contact details.

Please see our contact details below, and we look forward to hearing from you.
