The Gujarat Health Users' Forum is based at the Gujarat Hindu Society in Preston. The forum was established by health care professionals and users of the regional health services to give people better access to appropriate, high quality health care services.

Company description
The Forum is based at the Centre for Research into Health & Wellbeing at the University of Bolton, but it also operates from the Gujarat Hindu Society in Preston. It is supported by a variety of NHS Trusts, councils, universities, voluntary groups and private enterprises. It has a variety of roles but is best known for organising a growing programme of Health Mela events, which enable families and individuals to get valuable professional healthcare advice in a friendly and informal environment.
First conceived and developed in Lancashire, these health melas have spread from town to town, city to city and are now supported by a wealth of partners from the public, private and voluntary sectors. In addition, the Forum is also supported by practitioners of alternative medicine, who provide workshops and seminars on subjects such as reflexology, holistic living, aerobics, yoga and meditation.
The Health Melas are intended to be informative and fun, with events and attractions for all the family. In the following video, made in 2009, Professor Romesh Gupta and Ishwer Tailor MBE explain the role of the Forum and the development of the health mela concept.
