Support with health conditions

Support with health conditions

If you have a health condition, whether it's to do with your physical or mental health, many places can offer support. Charities and other services offer information and support for conditions such as dementia, arthritis, heart conditions, cancer, HIV and AIDS, and stroke. You can even find podiatrists to help with foot problems or exercise services for people with osteoporosis.
