Health Chats are opportunistic generic brief interventions aimed at imparting knowledge of healthy lifestyle behaviours, signposting to lifestyle and other services and nudging members of the community to take action to improve their health and wellbeing for themselves, their family and their community.

The aim of our Health Chats programme is to develop and systematically harness the work of frontline staff and community services, to improve customer, staff, patient/client and visitor health. Our initial programme will focus on:- Alcohol, Be active, Healthy eating, Mental wellbeing, Sexual health (focused on under 19s), Tobacco.

These lifestyle factors contribute to cancers, heart disease and strokes, respiratory diseases and diseases of the endocrine system.  They also contribute significantly to excess and premature deaths, poor quality of life, increased hospital episodes and length of stay.

These themes will be core subjects, and woven into that will be learning on how these link to cancers, high cholesterol and blood pressure, and heart disease.  Supplementary learning on wider determinants of health such as housing, employment, skills and debt management will also be offered.
