Patient Participation Group

About our PPG and how to join

The Cranborne Practice Patient Participation Group (PPG) is formed of people from a variety of backgrounds, who each bring something different to the group. Its members are volunteer patients who work with the managers and clinicians at The Cranborne Practice and Lake Road Surgery to support and promote the best possible health care for all patients

Our Patient Participation Group works with the Practice to help staff to improve the quality of healthcare and response to patient needs.  For more about who we are and what we do, please follow this link to the PPG Terms of Reference>>

Getting Your View

The PPG welcome contact from patients with any constructive ideas or suggestions that you may have.  Please email the Chairperson, Julie Saunders at with your thoughts along with the actions we or the Practice could take to better support patients' health and wellbeing. 


Our most recent meeting was held on the Thursday 11th April, 2024, and the next meeting is scheduled to take place Thursday 27th June, 2024 at 2pm.  

We continue to offer participation via video call to those who prefer it. However we are currently seeking to identify a meeting venue which is accessible, has sufficient capacity and a good WiFi signal in order to reinstate face to face meetings within COVID safety guidelines. 

Agendas are published a few days before the meeting date, or email our PPG Chair at for further information.
