Brand new Healthy Hubs are launching across Hertfordshire
A new health and wellbeing service funded by Hertfordshire County Council and delivered in partnership with district and borough councils will go live in January 2020.
Healthy Hubs are dedicated local venues where people can get health services, support and advice all in one place, making it easier to get help with a range of physical and mental health issues. Whether it’s stop smoking services, help to lose weight, mental health support, encouragement to get more active or even advice on how to cut down on your drinking - Healthy Hubs can help.
Each district in Hertfordshire will have a Healthy Hub which will be based in convenient and well known locations making it easy for people to make appointments or drop in to access the advice and support available.
Hertfordshire County Council’s Director of Public Health, Jim McManus said: “The Healthy Hubs are part of our District Partnership programme, through which we have already invested £2.3million into health and wellbeing services across the county over the last four years.
“This new initiative will see a further £1million invested over the next two years to enable each district to establish a Healthy Hub in their area, making it easier for people to pop in and get the friendly, professional one-to-one support they need to improve their health and wellbeing.”
In January full details of hub locations, opening times and service available will be published at www.healthyhubs.org.uk.
