A virtual group is a group of patients who would like to be part of the Patient Participation Group (PPG) but prefer not to attend meetings. They get involved by email instead. Information such as practice newsletters, minutes of the PPG meetings and surveys will be shared electronically. It means that if you can't make face-to-face meetings, are caring for someone and unable to leave them, or are working, you can still be kept informed, give your views and participate.
