Practice Participation Group

The Patient Group works together with us to share ideas to try to improve the service we offer.

Colchester Medical Practice operates a shared PPG across Castle Gardens, Wimpole Road, Shrub End Surgery and Parsons Heath. We have 2-3 patient representatives from each site who meet every three months to discuss any issues and plans affecting patients.

Register with the PPG

Are you interested in finding out more about your Surgery and what it has to offer?

Would you like to have your voice heard and share ideas on how to best improve our services?

We already have full site representation, but you can contact your representatives using the email address below or complete a form that is available in your surgery’s waiting room.

To register, please email

Important: This email is managed by patients not the practice and you should never include personal or confidential information.

If you want to register to receive regular updates and minutes of the meetings, please also contact the group as above, detailing your email address. For those without access to email, a hard copy will be placed on the PPG notice board at each site once approved.

Next Meeting Date

The patient participation group site representatives meet on the first Monday in January, April, July and October. If a Monday falls on a bank holiday it will be held the following Monday.
