HEALTH & WELLBEING

Updated: Oct 10, 2019

This is a weekly series of programmes funded by NHS Tayside Community Innovation Fund.

The intention of the programme is to provide a platform for information transfer of all topics relating to Health & Well Being (H&WB) across all of Highland Perthshire (HP).

HP is a large geographic area with poor public transport links in most rural communities making communication a problem. HFM goes a long way to solving that problem as the only mass communication provider catering for local issues.

Each week we interview 4 people providing a related service or information on a related topic, these are then uploaded to our Soundcloud account as podcasts for download. They are also distributed via all our social media platforms and emailed to the participants for their own networks allowing us to cover as wide a population spread as possible.
