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.

Following our AGM on Sat 18 Nov 2023 (at approximately 11:00am) we will be hearing from our Corkill award nominees with time for a ‘Question and Answer’ session.  Please email community@napp.org if you would like to attend this seminar, you will be very welcome.
