Healthy living in Lambeth
How does the NHS support people to stay healthy?
We work with Lambeth Council to promote healthy living in Lambeth and reduce health inequalities. We do this by making sure all residents have access to services which support them to stay healthy.
What healthy living services are available?
Lambeth Council provides a range of services to help people stay healthy, for example:
Lambeth CCG provides services like:
- Support to stop smoking
- Advice through hospitals and health visitors to new parents
- Alcohol and drug advice
- Healthy eating advice at the hospital
Other NHS organisations, like NHS England and Public Health England, provide services as well. For example:
- Vaccinations and immunisations
- Screening for cancer
- Healthy eating advice at GP surgeries and pharmacies
