New website for health help in South Gloucestershire

PEOPLE in South Gloucestershire have a new and easy first point of contact for improving their health and well-being.

The One You South Gloucestershire website provides up-to-date tips and apps to help people make simple changes to improve overall health and well-being, including reducing alcohol intake and managing stress. There is also a quit smoking service, guidance on healthy eating and practical advice on how to work towards a healthy weight.

This service can be accessed online at oneyou.southglos.gov.uk, with a telephone helpline open during office hours where a trained health advisor can help, on 01454 865337.

Council cabinet member for adult and public health Ben Stokes said: “We have been offering many of these services for a few years, but this is the first time we have pulled them into a single resource allowing people to access information for themselves or speak to an adviser if they wish.

"We recognise that many health conditions are linked, such as low physical activity and poor mental health, so by bringing these services together we can support our residents to make multiple and long-lasting changes to improve their health.”

One You South Gloucestershire is a free service for all adults over the age of 18 who are a South Gloucestershire resident or registered with a GP practice in South Gloucestershire.

It is managed by South Gloucestershire Council and partners and funded by the council and the NHS Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group.
