General Issues

Nairn PPG is an independent organisation whose aims are to work with Nairn Healthcare Group to enable the improvement of GP services to people in the area. During the course of the last year we have heard many stories of problems getting to the surgery, to the hospital and even to and from Nairn town itself, so decided to find out more and see if we could help find a solution.

The questions here are aimed at finding out how people in the area get around, how easy or hard it is for them and what more they'd do if they had better access to convenient transport.

We have another questionnaire about getting to and from appointments at the GP surgery and the Town & County Hospital. You can find this via our website or directly on

* 1. Which part of the Nairn Healthcare Catchment Group area do you live in?

* 2. How easy is it for you to use the transport choices that are available?
Rate each on the scale of 1 to 5, 1 being difficult, 5 being very easy to get or use
