South Eastern Hampshire CCG has developed a Locality Patient Group (LPG) called South Eastern Hampshire LPG. This has created a feedback loop between the practices Patient Participation Groups and the CCG.
The Locality Patient Group has a representative from most of the practice Patient Participation Groups across the CCG, one of whom is elected as chair for the group. The chair of the Locality Patient Group is a member of the Community Engagement Committee, and the chair of this committee is a member of the Governing body. This allows information to flow between the practice Patient Participation Groups and the CCG’s Governing Body and back to the practice Patient Participation Groups.
