Swindon Patient Participation Group (PPG) Forum

A PPG is a group of patients from a surgery, usually working with a member of staff, who want to help it work as well as it can for patients, doctors and staff.

Our PPG forum brings representatives from surgeries across Swindon together to discuss what is happening at each surgery, what the main concerns are and to share ideas to help make services better for patients.

NHS Long Term Plan

In March and April 2019 we spoke to people across Bath and North East Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire (BSW) to find out what changes they would like to see to local NHS services with additional funding from the government.

The findings from this and the Our Health, Our Future engagement work by the BSW Sustainable Transformation Partnership will be used to shape our local system’s five year plan.

Ageing Well and Frailty

One of our work priorities for 2019/ 20 is ageing well and frailty.

We carried out focus groups as part of our work on the NHS Long Term Plan to understand what 'ageing well' means to people in Swindon and what is needed from services in order to support older people to live and age well.

Primary Care Networks

From 1 July 2019, all patients in England should be covered by a primary care network (PCN).

PCNs are made up from groups of neighbouring general practices and forms a key part of the NHS Long Term Plan.

The aim of PCNs is to help surgeries work together at scale and share finances, in order to provide a wider range of services to patients.
