We are dedicated to preventing disease, prolonging life and promoting good health. There are number of resources to help you to live a healthy lifestyle, such as information on keeping active, eating healthy, and how to keep safe throughout the seasons.

Health and Wellbeing

Your well being is important to us. Not only can we support you on making small changes to your diet and becoming more active, but we also have an abundance of information on mental health, pregnancy, and ageing well.

If you are aged 40-74 and are registered with a Dudley borough GP we can also help you to apply for a NHS Health Check.

Summer wellbeing

Warmer summer months are the time for getting outdoors, enjoying the warm weather and relaxing in the sunshine. The summer heat can affect us all and some people are at greater risk of harm from high temperatures:

  • Older people, especially aged over 75
  • People who live on their own
  • Those with pre-existing health conditions
  • Babies and young children
  • People who spend a lot of time outside or in hot places

We've got lots of information on how to keep you and your family safe and well in the summer months.

Mental Health

Maintaining your own health is important.  For help and advice on maintaining good mental health, visit our support when living with mental health page.
