Birmingham and Solihull PPG Forum

Primary Care Engagement Forum

The Birmingham and Solihull PPG Forum supports the development of improving primary care, as well as wider health issues, through understanding grassroots practice level issues from a patient’s perspective.

Chaired by CCG Independent Member Qulsom Fazil, the Birmingham and Solihull PPG Forum provides a recognised forum, where patient representatives can represent the views and experiences of their Patient Participation Group (PPG). It also provides a direct link into, and acts as a conduit between PPGs and the Primary Care Commissioning Committee, within the recognised CCG governance structure.

There is a Terms of Reference in place for the forum; this confirms the CCG’s commitment to offering members the opportunity to influence the agenda, and ensures that members are providing updates to their PPGs after the meetings.
