NEW - CALENDAR
We have a new page - Calendar. Its design and intention is to quickly provide an 'easy on the eye' look at some calendar events of up-and-coming courses, workshops and general get-togethers.
It has been added to the side and top navigation menus and you can get to it by clicking/tapping on the calendar image here.

Anyone can get monkeypox, but currently most cases are in men who have sex with men, including gay and bisexual men. It spreads through close physical contact, like kissing, skin-to-skin, sex or sharing things like bedding and towels. There's more info at Monkeypox - NHS.

SOME HEALTH TIPS AND GUIDELINES FROM OUR NHS
Our very own Dr Laura Byrne, Consultant in HIV Medicine, has highlighted some useful NHS webpages that give advice, tips and guidelines about physical exercise and the strengths and benefits of trying to keep fit and stay healthy.
Amongst the Services pages on this site, are some handy links to these NHS web pages. Here's three of the pages:
NHS - Benefits of exercise - It can reduce your risk of major illnesses, such as coronary heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and cancer, and lower your risk of early death by up to 30%. It's free, easy to take, has an immediate effect, and you don't need a GP to get some. Its name? Exercise.
NHS - How to improve your strength and flexibility - Strength and flexibility exercises will help you increase muscle strength, maintain bone density, improve balance and reduce joint pain.
NHS - Walking for health - walking is simple, free and one of the easiest ways to get more active, lose weight and become healthier. Sometimes overlooked as a form of exercise, walking briskly can help you build stamina, burn excess calories and make your heart healthier.
