Resources for Patients
Did you know that there are a wide range of resources in your local area to help you and yours keep healthy? As well as the helpful resources on NHS Choices, we have hand picked some local resources which we think you will find useful not just when you are feeling unwell, but also to stay healthy now and for the future.
NHS Choices: Here you will find tools to help you find health resources in your area, check your symptoms, take some health checks with interactive tools, try out some fun myth busters, and find out about some great mobile apps like the Smoke Free app and drinks tracker app which we particularly like.
Healthy St Helens: Here you will find useful information on Exercise, Food & Nutrition, Weight Management, Smoking Cessation, Alcohol, Mental Health & Well-being and Children & Families brought to you by St Helens
council. You can find out what’s on in St Helens as well as give back by volunteering for the programme.
St Helens Gateway: St Helens Gateway is a community hub of information, bringing together all health, social care and well-being information and services into one central place. Here you can find a wide range of information such as information on options when a student finishes school or college, what types of activities take place in a Community Centre, find support for parents or Carers of a disabled child, find help to quit smoking and access services for people with a mental health problem. St Helens Gateway is an independent, confidential and free service provided by the Millennium Centre (St Helens) Ltd and is available online, by email, over the phone and face-to-face.
Healthy Knowsley: The Knowsley Lifestyle Hub is a free local, confidential support service for anyone who would like support making positive changes in their life. Here you can take a lifestyle quiz to start your healthier lifestyle journey as well as get information on Physical Activity & Healthy Eating, Smoking, Sexual Health, Mental Wellbeing, Work and Learning, Money & Housing and Drugs & Alcohol. Additionally the Hub can put you in touch with a Lifestyle Advisor who can offer support and advice to help you to make the small changes you need to improve your lifestyle.
