Herefordshire Food Charter. Healthy food for people, place and planet

talk wellbeingThe ‘Talk Wellbeing’ service to communities around Herefordshire is offered via pop-up clinics in Hereford and the market towns, as well as via a specially adapted van that will visit many sites throughout the county.

Our experienced and friendly healthcare professionals will be out and about to offer a range of NHS services aimed to help people improve their health and wellbeing.  These services include:

  • How to reduce risk of heart disease and stroke
  • Cholesterol checks
  • Blood pressure checks
  • Practical advice on how to make changes to your health
  • Signposting to services and community groups that are available  (including community food /growing projects)

In addition to offering Health Checks for anyone aged 18 or over who lives or works in Herefordshire, you will be able to talk to our team about any issues that are affecting your health and wellbeing. They will then be able to signpost you to additional services or support that can help.

If you’re not currently registered with a GP Practice, our team will also be able to support you to get registered.

Please see below for the latest dates and venues. Keep checking back if none are listed below as the programme is updated regularly.

Are you a community group or organisation that could host the Talk Wellbeing Service?  If so, get in touch.

Likewise, if you have a food project / service that could be signposted - or if you know of anyone who is not registered with a GP, or isolated, and could use the service.
