Organisation aims and objectives

The Network is a group of patients, carers and the general public who are particularly interested in health services across Grampian. Members of the Network work in partnership with clinical staff and managers as a large group and sometimes as individuals on working groups and committees. Much of the Forum's work is associated with issues that impact on the whole of Grampian. The work can involve participating in working groups or discussion sessions, completing questionnaires and other methods that we are using to actively involve the general public, carers and patients in helping develop a local health service.
