Health Priorities

Our team of School Nurses have been finding out from parents what health advice and support they need to help their families live a healthier and happier lifestyle.

This year four top health priorities have been identified in Cumbria, including; healthy eating, drinking water, a smoke free environment and behaviour.

We have also used the feedback from families to produce a variety of other health related factsheets that contain helpful advice, top tips and useful resources. To view the factsheets simply click on any of the buttons below.
