Health Advice

(PAGE) Health Champions

Got a quick question about your health that needs answering? Health Champions can signpost you to a wide range of health-related services such as alcohol support smoking cessation teams and healthy eating experts, just to name a few. Health Champions are people from the local community who have been trained up to deliver brief interventions and give basic health advice.

Ways we can help:

  • You can find our Health Champions at a range of local events. One day you could find them on a stall at the local shopping centre or hospital; the next they could be at a community fete not far from your home. If you do see them out and about, do approach them with any questions you have.
  • Our Information & Advice Team may also be able to help you over the phone or by email with basic enquiries or signposting. Have you got a health condition and need assistance with financing your care? Our team can tell you whether you may be entitled to extra financial support and help you fill in the forms.
  • We also employ experienced Care Coordinators who have years of knowledge and expertise. People who use our Wellbeing Centres and Homecare Services can come to our Coordinators with any questions they may have about care plans or continued support for them or their loved one. We can liaise with many local services such as GP’s and Social Services to ensure that users get the help they need.
