At this year’s National Eisteddfod in Tregaron Hywel Dda University Health Board wants to offer you as much help and advice for looking after your health as possible.
From getting your blood pressure checked, to demonstrations on teeth cleaning, or a space to breastfeed your baby, please come and visit the health board’s stand at this year’s event.
Different health care professionals from Primary and Community Based Care will be in attendance throughout the week for you to get advice or receive signposting and leaflets on how to access different services throughout our health board.
On Saturday, 30 July and Friday, 5 August, Pharmacy and Medicine Management teams will be at our stand, with local pharmacist Richard Evans on hand.
Richard Evans, Community Pharmacist, said: “I am looking forward to promoting the services that community pharmacies can provide to patients at this year’s Eisteddfod. These include the Common Ailments Service, Sore Throat Test & Treat Service, Urinary Tract Infection Service, as well as the seasonal Flu Vaccination Service.
“Come join us in the health board tent, where I will also be offering blood pressure checks to visitors, one of many things on offer to anyone who stops by.”
There will be several other services present at our stand to promote keeping well, including:
Jo McCarthy, Deputy Director of Public Health at Hywel Dda UHB, added: “It’s a very exciting time to be at such a huge event in our community where we can talk with people about what matters to them in health and care. We are excited to demonstrate the work being done towards our long-term strategy A Healthier Mid and West Wales to keep people well and provide support they need in their communities.
“We’re looking forward to meeting as many of you as possible, so please do come and say hello!”
