Patient Group

Church View PPG has taken on the challenge of helping to save Primary Care provision in Plymouth.

We do this through offering support to the Church View Practice team and by reaching out to other PPGs in Plymouth to provide a cohesive response to the issues Plymouth’s primary care services are facing.  These include problems recruiting and retaining new GPs to our practices, ever-increasing patient lists and chronic under-funding.

Would you like to join us?

Church View PPG is not a platform for individuals to use to air their personal complaints about Church View staff or the treatment they have received from individual clinicians.

We currently have a committee of 8 members but would like to increase this to 12 members.  We meet once a month on average and meetings are for 1 hour.

Our aims are:

  • to raise awareness of everything Church View Practice is currently doing.
  • to support our GPs and healthcare professionals to do their jobs effectively and safely.
  • to work with other PPGs to end the crisis facing Plymouth’s primary care provision.

If you agree with our aims, would you be able to commit to one hour a month?  Our contact details are:

We look forward to meeting you!
