Improving health and wellbeing

Man and woman in discussion

Health is everybody’s business. Government campaigns and policy encourage healthy lifestyles. The issue is never out of the media. Health and social care practitioners trying to ‘make every contact count’ are called upon to support people to adopt healthier lifestyles and to serve as role models by keeping themselves in shape. All of this is focused on encouraging individuals into good health and healthy lifestyles.
