  • To have open communication with mutual respect.
  • For patient expertise in PPGs to be part of self-help groups / support national health campaigns.
  • PPGs have a role in informing patients / PPG members about other involvement opportunities and network in Care Commissioning Group and clinical communities.
  • Gain better understanding of the NHS / share with patients – helps self care and to “Choose Well” e.g. seeking pharmacist advice where appropriate prior to A&E.
