Health Matters

Selby Health Matters

Selby Health Matters is a partnership that brings together the District Council, County Council and health and community partners with the aim of increasing the healthy life expectancy of people in Selby district.

The partnership works with local groups and residents to improve the health of the poorest fastest and to reduce health inequalities.
 

This work supports our priority of making the Selby District a great place to enjoy life. 

Supporting Public Health England – Heart Age campaign:

The partnership is supporting Public Heath England’s Heart Age campaign. The campaign is encouraging people to find out how old their heart is by taking the Heart Age Test.

The test takes a few minutes to complete and compares your heart age with your actual age. Useful tips and how to reduce your heart age are given after the test.

The Summit Adventure is hosting a drop in session on 27th September between 10am – noon. You can take the test here and have your blood pressure checked for free.

Local pharmacies within the district are also offering free blood pressure checks, the pharmacies involved are:
Boots Pharmacy – Market Cross
Scott Road Pharmacy
Rowlands Pharmacy
ARC Pharmacy
Barlby Central Pharmacy
Thorpe Willoughby Pharmacy
Day Lewis Pharmacy
 

Mental Health

Through previous events, conferences and workshops we have mapped out the mental health services already available within the district.

Brighter Futures is an established forum where you can get involved and find out information about local facilities and services available to you.

The first forum meeting is at Selby Town Hall on the 4th September 5pm – 7pm.
