It’s Health Information Week! All this week (3-9 July 2017), you might spot lots of unusual activity going on in and around your local hospital, health centre or local authority offices. It’s all designed to let patients and the public know about where they can find the best, most reliable, quality information about health, in their local area. It’s being done through events, games, hands-on tuition and informative displays.
Health Information Week is an annual campaign to raise awareness of health information resources that are available to everyone. In the long-term, it’s about creating healthier, happier communities.
What have you learnt in Health Information Week? What’s your go-to resource for reliable health information? Share your stories with others on the Care Community so we can all learn how to manage chronic conditions, short-term illness and overall health and wellbeing.
It’d be great to hear from you.
