Network Mid Argyll

The Mid Argyll Health and Wellbeing Network enjoys a healthy membership of over 150 people, and is coordinated by Antonia Baird.
Anyone who is interested in improving the health of people in mid Argyll is welcome to join the network – we have members from the NHS, from local community organisations, health based businesses, and community representatives.

We meet at least 4 times a year, to network, build partnerships, share knowledge, enjoy presentations and participate in a healthy lunch.

In between meetings, members receive bulletins with relevant news and information, to which you are welcome to contribute.
