Centre helps beat diseases

Have your say

A SOUTH Yorkshire health centre is supporting a national awareness month around two medical conditions by reaching out with information and advice.

Rotherham Health Advice Centre is working to educate and inform residents about Raynaud’s disease – which affects the blood supply, usually to the fingers and toes – and scleroderma – an uncommon, chronic disease that affects the connective tissues that surround the joints, blood vessels and internal organs beneath the affected area of skin.

The facility, in the Community Health Centre in Greasbrough Road, is open Mondays to Friday between 9am and 5pm.

Lindsay Hall, health information manager, said: “We can provide a range of information about symptoms, treatments and support.”
