Health Issues, includes information on screening, newsletters from the NHS, Community Health Council etc

There is a great deal of news related to health and provision of services in the Montgomery area, we will endeavour to keep everyone up to date with information as we receive it. The links for information on screening & NHS general information can now be found in the archive folder.

Note that these are the main headline materials but alongside this you will find on the website a set of supporting materials.  This includes a suite of 21 two-page summary briefings covering issues such as Heart Health, Carers, Respiratory Conditions and more.  Some people may feel more comfortable engaging around their experience of a particular condition or life experience, rather than around the more general principles within the Draft Strategy.

Some of the related information can be found by clicking on the links below:-
