The Aims of the Patient Participation Group
The PPG is an active group of patient volunteers from Abbey Medical Group . The Groups’ key aims are to improve the patients’ experience and give them a voice in their local healthcare resourcing that improve their lifestyles and well being.
Our PPG ensures we have a direct link with those who commission our local healthcare; members of the group represent patients at events across the County, regionally and nationally; this ensures we can take our ideas to others and bring theirs’ back, to improve our patients’ choices about local healthcare, which reflects our particular community’s priorities.

COMMUNITY SPIRIT DOES LIVE ON
Blidworth on the move
Blidworth on the move has evolved directly from the support the Abbey Medical Groups (AMG) Patient Participation Group (PPG) and other local benefactors in the Blidworth and Rainworth areas.
It is a service that provides transport for patients and carers across local communities that are vulnerable, have transport issues and need to get to the doctors’ surgery in Ravenshead from Blidworth or Rainworth or to the hospital.
We as a group are working alongside other local voluntary transports schemes. The difference between our scheme is that we are trying to maintain the highest PPE to protect the vulnerable. We are most fortunate that through the support of the local family business Rainworth Fencing, they have come forward with an adapted vehicle that can take a wheelchair and has a Perspex screen to protect the driver and patients during the Covid 19 pandemic.
We want to ensure that those who are shielded, vulnerable, with special needs, elderly, sick, infirm, disabled or poor during this crisis get much needed medical treatment. This is a unique scheme and at the present we are limited and therefore only able to support Abbey Medical Group patients living in Blidworth and Rainworth areas.
We have limited resources.
The GP Partners and team at AMG support the initiative and appreciate the added support this scheme gives patients.
The drivers have full DBS checks and appropriate support and training
