“I’ve got to manage expectations, but …. This could be one of the greatest community projects ever…”

Mark O’Farrell from North West Boroughs Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust was the Guest Host for this month’s One Halton Health Show on Halton Community Radio with Matthew Roberts (from Halton & St Helens VCA) in the Producer’s Chair.

Our first guest was Clare Coppin from the Halton Heart Failure Team from Bridgewater Community Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust. Then we chatted with Chris Carlin from Well Halton who joined us live from “The Science of the Circus” at Shopping City.

In the second hour of the show we heard from Faye Andrews & Katie Madden from the Adults Inpatient Mental Health Services team in Halton (North West Boroughs Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust) and Fiona Wheelton & Gareth Stables from the Cheshire & Merseyside Treatment Centre and Orthopaedics (Warrington & Halton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust).
