Caswell Clinic Patient Magazine

The Caswell Chat Patient Magazine is published by patients at Caswell Clinic within Glanrhyd Hospital, Bridgend. S.Wales.  The magazine covers almost everything, from; News, Nature, Activities, Gardening, Arts/Crafts, and a few Health Thingies too!  More importantly, this is then sprinkled with a diverse and varied array of personal articles with individual perspectives and experiences, from Mental Health to Kilimanjaro.  Varied is the word.  We hope you will get a better understanding of Mental Health and also enjoy a good read.

Caswell Chat has a great archive going back to 2001, it’s an historical document in itself where you can see the changes and developments that have occurred at Caswell Clinic over the years along with the people who contributed to its past and present.

We encourage and welcome your feedback especially regarding patients work. Some patients have little or no interaction with the outside world, therefore, it will be rewarding that the creativity and abilities can be shared with a wider audience through the Caswell Chat.

In the meantime, welcome to our community at Caswell Clinic via the Caswell Chat

 Thank You for Visiting Us

Retro Computers

Flight sims are a rarity on modern consoles probably because gamers do not have the patience to sit and learn how to fly a plane with realistic physics preferring a quick blast instead.
