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.

  • The winning PPG will receive a prize of £400.00.
  • The runner-up PPG will receive a prize of £100.00.

Short-listed PPGs will receive local and national recognition with special member bulletins featuring links to website updates.

Award Conditions:

  1. All PPGs that are members of N.A.P.P. on the 1st August 2023 are eligible.
  2. The Award recognises outstanding work by a PPG in the preceding year (2022/3) which demonstrates an innovative approach to wider community engagement.
  3. Outstanding achievement may relate to several activities, helping many people or may include a particular scheme that had a significant impact on relatively few people.
  4. Entries are particularly encouraged where the PPG has managed to succeed in wider community engagement under challenging circumstances and where the PPG is striving to engage with those sections of the population that are ‘harder to reach’, seldom heard, isolated or lonely.
  5. PPGs can nominate themselves, and they can also be nominated by a patient, a member of the primary health care team, or a community organisation.
  6. PPGs entered for the Award must be willing to share their achievements with other PPGs, to foster the sharing of good practice, through local and national media as well as N.A.P.P.’s own communication channels.
  7. The work of the project conducted should be something which can be replicated by other PPGs.
  8. The closing date for applications was 31st October 2023.
