Public Health Information

Public health is about helping people to stay healthy and avoid getting ill and this includes a whole range of areas such as heart health, tobacco, alcohol and drug taking, road safety, flu vaccination and winter health, and nutrition.

There's lots you can do to keep healthy - whatever your age.

Taking exercise, eating a healthy diet, encouraging people to be heart healthy and being aware of dangers such as smoking, drinking, high blood pressure, and stress are all important for your long-term health.

It doesn’t have to mean a complete change to your lifestyle. Below are some simple steps recommended by the British Heart Foundation for keeping healthy:

  • Getting up and doing something during lunch or break times.
  • Taking the stairs instead of the lift.
  • Travelling ‘actively’ – for example, by walking part of the way.

You could also try:

  • changing your routine to avoid bad habits or temptations
  • having at least two alcohol-free nights each week
