Information and support for rural people affected by ill-health and long term conditions

The Macmillan Rural Health Outreach Service is here for you and for your carers, family and friends.  It is coordinated by Rachel Metcalfe .  You can talk in confidence to Rachel , who is there to listen to your worries and concerns.  Many people find that by simply talking through their situation they are able to discover new and better ways of coping.
