Local Self Help Groups

We have been given details of the following self help groups by the people responsible for running them. They are in no way connected to The Stewart Medical Centre, but may be of benefit to some of our patients.

The information is correct at the time of posting on the website, however, for the latest information, we suggest contacting the group directly.
