Jean Northover - Lay Partner

 

 

 Jean joined the Lay Partners Forum last February and has attended all the events held in 2014 and 2015.

 "Since attending meetings of the Patient Participation Group (PPG)  at my local health centre, I have become inspired by the changes afoot in the NHS. Being a member of the Lay Partners Forum has been a great opportunity to learn more about the changes to services in North West London and to discuss them with other patients. I think the points I make at table discussions are well received or at any rate provoke further discussion. I can speak for the elderly patients being now in my mid-eighties, and I can also speak for carers having done 16 years of home dialysis for our daughter starting when she was 9 years old in 1969"
