Dudley Borough Patient Participation Groups : comments made by Friends of Ridgeway surgery Chair, Cicely Thomas regards recent Health and Wellbeing Event held in Sedgley :

Friends of Ridgeway Surgery (also known as a Patient Participation Group or PPG) are a group of patients  who meet bimonthly with the Practice Manager.  As a representative patient group we ask for their views regarding on-going planning and decision making about the practice. The group allows patients to have a say about important issues such as opening times,or the quality of the care or service patients receive and we actively encourage more patients to join. If you would further information please ask at Reception.  If you would like to join the group please complete the Patient Group Sign-up Form below or contact us by e-mail at Please note, this e-mail is for the Friends of Ridgeway Surgery group information only. It is not for Clinical correspondence or medication requests.

Virtual Patient Participation Group.

Not able to make meetings but you would like to be involved through email?

We are aware that some patients may wish to contribute to such group but are not able, or do not wish to attend in person. Therefore we also have a ‘Virtual PPG’ and we encourage as many of our registered patients as possible to join this group.

The Virtual PPG is only contacted by email, we may, for example, contact you to gain your feedback regards our annual survey results or any other changes we are thinking of making at the surgery. If you are interested in joining our Virtual PPG please complete the Virtual PPG Form and hand in at Reception

Please note that if you have an issue of a confidential nature or complaint then this should still be addressed to the
Practice Manager, Ella Thompson.

We will be in touch shortly after we receive your form. Please note that no medical information or questions will be responded to.
