Diane McCormick, Chair PPG Plus Halton
"After retirement I decided to give some of my time to supporting local NHS services. I am currently chair of Appleton Village Surgery Patient Participation Group (PPG) as well as chair of PPG Plus which involves all the GP practices in Halton. I am also a member of the Halton Healthwatch Advisory Board and Public Governor of Bridgewater Community NHS Foundation Trust.
My family and I have lived in Widnes all our lives and I feel that my local knowledge of the area and its history helps me in supporting our NHS in engaging with Halton residents on health-related topics.
My professional background includes working as a radiographer at Whiston Hospital and systems manager for ICI occupational health in the North West and North East of England."
