Local Directory - Nantwich and Rural Care Community

Local Directory

As you can see the Directory on this page is listed by health-related category in alphabetical order.

The number in brackets next to each category is the number of different entries listed when you click on it. Given the very tricky and fluid circumstances with Covid-19 we are adding updated content all the time.

The Directory is a mixture of local support and information (which we are hoping to add to as easing of Covid restrictions allows) alongside some broader, UK-wide content as well.

If you know of any virtual health-related events coming up in Nantwich & Rural Care Community please do send the details in to us through the Contact Us page and we will include them.

For example, financial worries can affect your health and wellbeing. Starting on Tuesday 16th March, there is a local, free course to help you manage your money better and learn to budget, save and spend well:
 
16.03.21 CAP Money Pig course

St Mary’s Church in Nantwich has been running the CAP Money Course, in partnership with Christians Against Poverty (CAP), for the last three years. Michael Pettman, local CAP Money Coach said: “The past few months have been very challenging for all of us. One concern is not really knowing what the outcome will be as we come out of the lockdown.”

The online course will be delivered using video conferencing systems. To find out more and book a place please email saintmarys.capnantwich@gmail.com

We would like to reassure you that Nantwich and Rural GP Practices remain fully open for routine appointments.

If you’ve had a cough for three weeks and it isn’t COVID-19, it could be a sign of cancer. It’s probably nothing serious but, if it is cancer, then finding it early makes it more treatable. Your NHS is here to see you, safely. Please contact your GP practice.

Please see this 30-second video as a guide to when to use NHS 111

 

Please remain as careful as ever with Covid in this third national lockdown:
