The NAHHT committee should be made up of 3 representatives from each of the areas, but we currently have vacancies. If you are interested in joining, please contact one of the members below.

You may have noticed that our committee meetings move about the country.
This is to minimise travel for some who live in more inaccessible areas and for us to often visit other people's facilities to get new ideas!
As we said at the AGM we are looking into ways of meeting up remotely and that is ongoing. We feel that more people might be interested if they didn't have to give up a whole day for each meeting.
Don't forget, we still have vacancies .... Please ask if you would like any more info.
Best wishes
