Corkill Award 2023 Presentations – 18 Nov 2023

This Award was established by the N.A.P.P. Board in 2012 in recognition of a former Chairman, Joe Corkill, and his contribution to the promotion of patient participation for over twenty years. This year the theme is celebrating PPGs working in their wider communities.
