The health improvement service, Be Well Tameside, has moved from Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust to Tameside Council’s Population Health team.
The service continues to offer support and advice around health and wellbeing to all Tameside residents, who work/volunteer in Tameside or are registered with a Tameside GP.
People can continue to seek advice, one to one appointments, regular contact and support to achieve goals and practical tips on lifestyle issues, such as; stopping smoking, weight management and support around food, nutrition and healthy eating, increasing physical activity, reducing salt, sugar and caffeine, oral health and alcohol awareness. There is also access to NHS health checks and a free training programme.
Appointments are available at a number of venues across Tameside, including telephone and video appointments. People can self-refer in to the service by making an appointment on 0161 342 5050 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
. Your health and care professionals can also refer you into the service.
