The aim of The Health and Wellbeing Group is to provide an opportunity for members to develop a better understanding of current issues which impact on the health and wellbeing of the population with some, but not exclusive, emphasis on those affecting older people.

The meetings can take various formats but frequently involve talks by health professionals in current practice as well as others from academic/research backgrounds. The talks are supported by question and discussion sessions which further explore the topic. The size of the group is kept sufficiently small to allow a free expression of views and interaction. Topics can include all aspects of health and wellbeing but the accent is on recent developments in the field and on looking to possible future developments.

On occasions there may be an opportunity to become involved in, and contribute to, health research programmes. Recently members have been involved in taking part in a research project at Surrey University on the relationship between Vision and Alzheimer’s disease as well as contributing to a doctoral programme on ethics in the health service.

Members are expected to commit to all the meetings whenever possible in order to ensure continuity of learning and development. Currently membership of the group includes people from across Petersfield u3a with varied backgrounds; some are ex-health professionals whilst others are simply interested in the topics we address. The meetings are not for hypochondriacs, free GP consultations, or for complaining!!
