  • Please could you add me to the distribution list for conferences etc.
    I manage Adult Mental health in North Powys but was not aware of the conference & wondered whether MH Colleagues could be invited?
    Many Thanks

    • Hi Andre – thank you for your message. We will most certainly add you to our distribution list and include you in any information circulars. The Conference is open to everyone, from medical to health and social care practitioners, including patients and the general public. It is free to attend the conference, however people need to follow this link and press the “I’m attending” tab: https://ruralhealthandcare.wales/events/2017/11/rhcw-annual-conference/
      The number of places available at the conference are limited therefore early booking is encouraged. Thanks.

  • Please can I book a place for the Rural Health and Care Conference taking place on 14th November 2017

  • I have just now pressed the ‘I’m attending ‘ key. Will I receive any indication that I have a place? I am the founding member of the ‘Llanfair Clydogau Health, Social Care and Well-being Group’ on Facebook and have a very considerable interest in Health and Social Care administrative matters. I would much appreciate it if I could be added to your mailing list. Many thanks. Kind regards, Bill Parker

    • Hi Bill – thank you for registering for the conference, it should be a very interesting day. Everyone who has noted that they will be attending the conference will receive full joining instructions on Monday. I will make sure you are included in our mailing list as well. We look forward to seeing you on the 14th November.

      • Hi Anna, Thank you. I am greatly looking forward to gaining a better understanding of the vision for Care at Home particularly in remote rural communities.

  • I have booked a space for the conference and am very much looking forward to it thanks for the invite.
