Every GP practice is required to have a Patient Participation Group (PPG). The Marisco Patient Group is the PPG for Marisco Medical Practice.
Unlike many PPG's we do not believe in restricting membership to a select few. Our aim is to recruit as many members as possible so that we can ensure a representative voice for Mablethorpe and the surrounding areas. The practice has 14,000 patients and we currently have 136 members - so we have some way to go!
The constitution dictates that we have a committee, which is voted in each year and which comprises 11 members. Because we are an active group, we do ask that our committee members actively participate in the growth of the group and the services we provide. For normal members, whilst you are welcome to all our meetings (closed committee aside), we ask nothing more than you share your views as is appropriate
