- NHS Healthy Town Status can Inspire Change
It seems as though barely a day goes by without a big story regarding the NHS but there is a lot to be said for the good work and effort that is being undertaken by the health organisation all across the country.

The NHS is respected and it has a role to play in encouraging people to lead better and healthier lives, which is why the NHS Healthy Town initiative should be encouraged.

Of course, given the pressures placed on the NHS and it is not uncommon for patients to be moved from room to room or switched from where they should be.
