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. The Directory contains a mixture of local content as well as links to websites and social media.

As we follow the roadmap out of lockdown, fresh content about local support groups, health events and activities that are starting up again is being added all the time on this page.

Here is the link to the Government’s full guidance on What Is Allowed Now According To The Current Restrictions.

As some of us meet in person again please do remain especially careful indoors.


 

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