How to diagnose and test for hypercalcaemia

Where? 'Aberystwyth is surrounded on three sides by some of the most glorious countryside in Great Britain and one of the most concentrated collections of award-winning beaches in the UK.' – Ceredigion county council

Sounds fine so far –

anything else?

Aber, as it known by locals, is widely thought to be the seat of Welsh culture and is home to the oldest university in Wales, as well as the National Library of Wales.

Work? There are 21 GPs working in five surgeries in the Aberystwyth under Ceredigion local health board.

Homes? £249,995 will get you a 'well-appointed' three bedroom semi-detached near the university, national library and Bronglais hospital.

Schools? Aberystwyth has a grand total of five primary schools and two secondary schools – the smaller one, Penweddig, is completely Welsh-language.

Leisure? Aberystwyth is a university town and tourist destination so there's a lot going on. The rugged landscape and immaculate beaches offer natural diversions.

Famous residents: Alumni of the University of Aberystwyth include disgraced Tory MP Neil Hamilton and Prince Charles, who spent a term preparing for his role as Prince of Wales.

From the local press: 'Health officials admitted this week they still did not know why 12 Aberystwyth school students suffered severe side-effects following anti-TB vaccinations, and a third went into anaphylactic shock.' – Cambrian News, February 2
