Clinic brings care closer to home

Another clinic is opening at the Todmorden Health Centre bringing more care closer to home for residents of the upper Calder Valley.

The monthly rheumatology clinic starts on Thursday, February 23, and will provide care for up to 12 patients at each session.

The clinic will be headed by Dr Cheryl Fernandes and will save travel time and costs for patients who would previously have had to travel to Calderdale Royal Hospital in Halifax.

To get an appointment at the centre, patients are advised to ask their GPs as appointments need to be booked well in advance.
