Our meetings are held quarterly and members of the public are invited to come along and observe proceedings. We will publicise our activities, including agenda and minutes, on-line on our news page here, on our Facebook page, at the Surgeries in Nairn and Ardersier, at Nairn and Ardersier Libraries and Council Service Points and at Nairn Community Centre.

Nairn Patients Participation Group (PPG) is run exclusively by patients of the Nairn Healthcare Group practice. It is an independent voluntary group and was formed in April 2012 following the merger of the Ardersier and Nairn GP Practices.

All patients registered with Nairn Healthcare Group are now automatically members of the PPG. When first formed our membership drew from the Ardersier patients group which already existed and patients in Nairn who either had expressed previous interest in participating or who responded to advertisements and articles published earlier in the year inviting patients to join. A small committee of five co-ordinates PPG business on behalf of the PPG. The PPG meets quarterly and the committee is elected annually in April.

Our aim is to contribute to the continuous improvement of GP services and to foster improved communication between Nairn Healthcare Group and its patients. We are keen to hear about patients’ experiences and views of GP services in Nairnshire. We are committed to playing our part in working with the Practice to contribute to the improvement of services.
