My Health

While in care, the local authority must make sure that you are healthy and support you to keep fit and well.

After you have had your first health review with the Doctor, you will then be seen each year, or as necessary, by the nurses who are part of the Corporate Parenting Team.

The nurses are there to provide you with any help that you need with staying healthy and you can contact them directly if you have any concerns or worries. Details can be found in the Who's who section.

We also offer further advice on subjects such as:

  • relationships and sexual health
  • drugs, alcohol and smoking
  • emotional issues
  • diet and exercise
  • immunisations.
