Welcome to the NHP Website

All you need to know about what is going on locally in the
health and well-being world in Nailsworth and Horsley

Nailsworth Health Partnership is a registered charity seeking to improve the health and well being of people who live and work in the Nailsworth area. How can we do this? By promoting a healthier lifestyle in a healthier environment, something that will benefit us all. We also want to take a lead in providing and sharing information and education. Our aim is not to start from scratch, but to supplement and improve the many existing health related activities in our local community.

The Partnership is keen to create and improve understanding and collaboration between those working in mainstream health and those working in complementary fields.
