Health concerns


Residents are understandably concerned to about any possible health issues that a mobile phone mast might bring. Particularly in the light of sometimes conflicting information that seems to be available on the subject. Neither the Parish Council nor Shared Access are medical experts so we have to rely on the research and findings of those who are.

Opinion of major health organisations

Some of the information available can be found on the following websites

  • NHS leaflet (PDF, 1.3 Mb)

    NHS leaflet. Mobile phones and base stations.


  • Cancer Clusters
    This page from Cancer Research UK explains why cancer clusters exist, or appear to exist, and how they are investigated to determine if there is a particular cause or if they are just random variation. Also contains links to further explanations of how this is tested.

Other information

However, searching the internet will also bring up pressure groups and newspaper articles that seek to give a different impression.
