The National Forum for Health and Wellbeing, Rotary Cumbria and Lancashire & Carnforth High School announce the first Carnforth Health Mela (Health Fair) to be held on Saturday, 25th June 2016 at Carnforth High School, Kellet Road, LA5 9LS.

This event is particularly significant for NFHW in its fifteenth year of service to local communities, as it marks a key stage in extending our activities across the North West of England. Year on year ever increasing numbers of visitors have taken advantage of the friendly, informal setting of the Health Melas to access health information, advice and a wide range of health checks. We are delighted that, on the initiative of our partners in Rotary, this opportunity is now being extended to Carnforth.

The event will be open to the public from 11 am to 4 pm and will be formally opened by the Guest of Honour Dr. Chris Moulton, Chris MoultonVice President of the Royal College of Emergency Medicine.

Dr. Chris Moulton will give a short presentation entitled “Don’t walk across the grass!”

The ‘Breakfast Meeting’, will be held at 10.00 am before the Health Mela opens to the public.

It offers an opportunity for health professionals, NHS Trust representatives, community leaders, members of voluntary bodies etc. to discuss health related issues of current concern.   The theme for the meeting is ‘Working towards the appropriate use of our Hospital A&E’. Those interested in attending the breakfast meeting should register their interest with Professor Romesh Gupta, OBE, Chair, National Forum for Health & Wellbeing including your name, organisation and indicating whether or not you will be bringing a guest.
