Litchdon Patient Participation Group, Barnstaple Devon

Welcome to the Litchdon Patient Participation Group

Patient to Patient --- Where your views --- Really matter

We are an independent group which works closely with Litchdon Medical Centre.

We work with the practice on behalf of all patients.

Remember that the group is only as good as you make it - so keeping in touch with us is important to you.

The Chair Person of the group from July 2017 is Sue Matthews.

Meeting 27 June 2022

The upcoming PPG meeting will be the first face to face meeting since late 2019. We are looking forward to seeing you again!

The date has now been decided as 27 June and the meeting will be in the upstairs conference room in the surgery 2.00pm-4.00pm. This is a variation on our usual evening meetings which some are unable to attend. We are hoping that those who find a daytime date easier will be able to get along. We apologise that the venue is not disabled accessible, there is no lift in the building but we welcome all those able to come and we will send out the minutes to anyone who wants them.

It is helpful but not essential if you could let me know if you intend to come along. We hope to make this a slightly more social occasion than the regular meeting and will be providing refreshments (both the healthy and not so healthy variety!) Please remember to wear your mask as for health safety the surgery still requires anyone entering the building to do so.

Many thanks
Looking forward to seeing you

National Association for Patient Participation

The National Association for Patient Participation promotes and supports patient participation in primary care.

Groups are an effective way for patients and GP surgeries to work together to improve services and to promote health and improved quality of care. PPGs are making a real difference across the UK.
Join N.A.P.P. And benefit from support to your practice and PPG.


We are a part of the NAPP and refer to them in the way we conduct our patients group.

The NHS recognises that input from patients is vital to best practise in surgeries.

We work as an independent group but with the doctors and management of the surgery.

Our aim is to work with you to get the best possible services and care for all the patients of the Litchdon Medical Centre.
