The Community Development and Health Network (CDHN) is Northern Ireland’s leading organisation working to empower communities and tackle health inequalities using community development.


We were delighted with the turnout today at our 23rd AGM and Networking event in The Old Courthouse, Markethill. 

We would like to thank all our exhibitors and participants for their input today, it was greatly appreciated.

We will update you with the outcome of our focus groups in the next few weeks. 

CDHN were delighted to showcase a session with one of our BCPP projects to Kathryn Turner and Tracy McAlorum from the Health and Social Care (HSC) Board. Huge thanks to The Right Key in Dromore for welcoming us so warmly in to their group today. We honestly had the best fun ever and we'll be practicing our singing for when we visit again!!

Thanks to @compharmacyni and @MediCare_Group for inviting Kathy Martin to join in the #AskYourPharmacist celebrations.

It was a great opportunity to discuss BCPP with @roybeggs MLA.

Are you looking for professional healthcare advice and treatment close to home at a time that suits you and without an appointment?  Then just call in to your local community pharmacy!

The Community Development and Health Network (CDHN) are delighted to launch their new Impact Report and Card for the Building the Community-Pharmacy Partnership (BCPP) programme, both branded with their newly designed logo.

BCPP has a proven track record demonstrating improvements in health, positive changes in how people use pharmacy and better relationships between pharmacists and communities. After participating in BCPP, 81% of participants felt more in control of their health and 93% of pharmacists agreed they are making better use of their skills.
