Joining in

Anyone who lives in the catchment area of Nairn Healthcare Group can take part in NAPG meetings like this one and can also put themselves forward to join the committee and our working groups.
We’re especially keen to encourage young people (and we don’t just mean those under 60, we also mean teens and twenties!) as well as those with organizational or commercial experience to join us.
There’s plenty of room on the committee. Some of the existing committee are standing down, others are putting themselves forward again.

What you can do:
The kind of work people can get involved in is quite varied – all of it involves building sound relationships with Health and Care service managers and staff in our area. These are the more obvious roles or activities
1. Chair
2. Deputy Chair: will deputise for chair, so might expect to chair around 30% of NAPG and committee meetings, including those with Jean-Pierre and his colleagues.
3. Secretary: take notes of meetings & prepare correspondence arising.
4. Treasurer
5. Updating website www.nairnpatientsgroup.org.uk facebook www.facebook.com/NairnPatientsGroup twitter https://twitter.com/nairnppg
6. Network communications: co-ordinating distribution of posters and notices around the area, surgery, library and other public noticeboards

How people can join in:
People can put themselves forward for membership of the committee at any time from now up until the AGM. Simply phone and let us know your interest, email or write.

The AGM will be held from 7.00pm on 12th May 2015 at Nairn Community and Arts Centre.
