Brand new Healthy Hub coming to South Oxhey

07th November 2019

A new health and wellbeing service funded by Hertfordshire County Council and delivered in partnership with district and borough councils launches in Hertfordshire. 

Healthy Hubs are dedicated local venues where people can get health services, support and advice all in one place, making it easier to get help with a range of physical and mental health issues. 

Whether it’s stop smoking services, help to lose weight, mental health support, encouragement to get more active or even advice on how to cut down on your drinking - your Healthy Hub can help you. 

Step Up Healthy Hub, situated on 39 Oxhey Drive launches on Monday 11 November 2019. It will offer coffee mornings, talks and activities every week, the Step in Café will also be open every second Saturday of each month.

People will be able to make appointments or drop in to access the advice and support available. 

Hertfordshire County Council’s Director of Public Health, Jim McManus said: “The Healthy Hubs are part of our District Partnership programme, through which we have already invested £2.3million into health and wellbeing services across the county over the last four years. 

“This new initiative will see a further £1million invested over the next two years to enable each district to establish a Healthy Hub in their area, making it easier for people to pop in and get the friendly, professional one-to-one support they need to improve their health and wellbeing.” 

Jane Drury, the new Health and Wellbeing Officer at the Healthy Hub, said “I’m excited to be part of this new project in Three Rivers which will expand the support available to our community and help to reduce health inequalities.” 

Councillor Chris Lloyd, Lead Member for Leisure, said: “This is a great new initiative and example of partnership working, which will help people across our local community, offering new activities and access to different services to improve wellbeing.”
