Health advice

Working with partners across the borough, we aim to provide advice and services for the health and wellbeing of all Hackney residents.

Hackney iCare

iCare is a directory of  health and social care providers. You can also complete a self-referral or wellbeing plan:

NHS Choices

NHS Choices is the UK’s biggest health website.

  • visit NHS Choices – a comprehensive health information service to help put you in control of your healthcare

Local services

Get Hackney Healthy

We’ve developed two documents as part of our cross-cutting Get Hackney Healthy work, which aims to promote healthy lifestyles for children and families.

The early years settings and children’s centre healthy weight guidance helps early years settings create environments where children can maintain a healthy weight and provides information on our healthy living and obesity services and advice on how to evaluate any services you commission.

The Hackney childhood obesity framework: 0-5 provides a vision for working in partnership to reduce childhood obesity and includes national and local data alongside information on healthy weight services available for under 5s across the system.

Health, exercise and nutrition for the really young (HENRY)

HENRY is a free 8-week healthy lifestyle and parenting programme for parents and carers with 0-5 year olds. Sessions run in venues across Hackney. For more information please tel: 07519 109 876, or email: hcsupport@henry.org.uk.

Immunisation

Measles – make sure your child is fully vaccinated.

NHS health check

The NHS health check is a chance to get your free midlife MoT. For adults in England aged 40-74 without a pre-existing condition, it checks your circulatory and vascular health and assesses your risk of getting a disabling vascular disease. Please contact your GP practice about your NHS health check.

If you’re not eligible for a health check, take this quick NHS quiz to find out your ‘heart age’? Find out if your heart age is older than your real age, and discover the simple steps you can take to live more healthily.
