Our Future Health

You may be aware of this new initiative from the NHS to try to gather data on the nation’s health and help us live longer and more healthy lives.  You can be part of this research by signing up for free via the link below.  There is now a mobile unit based at Tesco Extra at Clifton Moor and there is a £10 e-voucher for taking part. It involves measurement of height and weight, waste circumference, finger prick test for cholesterol profile and a venous blood sample for research.  The cholesterol results are given during your visit.  Total time for the assessment is about 15mins.  Results are not sent to your GP.


Rural Services Network

The Rural Services Network, as the national champion for rural services, has put together a series of asks which we want to see the political parties adopt in their manifestos. The challenges rural communities face cannot be tackled in isolation, our communities need homes they can afford, with good jobs, connectivity to enable businesses to grow and access to public services that are fairly funded.
