South Gwynedd Long Term Health and Chronic Conditions Alliance

A MEETING of the alliance was held at Dolgellau Hospital on Tuesday, 17 September.

There were representatives from several organisations present, and two new members from Working for ME in Wales were welcomed.

Some very useful information was shared by representatives of the organisations present and they reported on various committees they had attended.

At the meeting the annual Good Health Event was discussed. This will be held at Glan Wnion Leisure Centre on Friday, 12 October.

There will be over 40 organisations present on the day, including a blood pressure-taking opportunity, local pharmacy on hand to give advice, complementary therapies, taster sessions, a memory and friendship café, and much more.

Everyone is welcome to call in any time between 10am and 2pm.

Liz Saville Roberts MP and Ffion Johnstone, Betsi Cadwaladr Health Board’s area director for the west, will be opening the event.

The next meeting of the alliance will be held in March at the hospital.
