Better health in Bromley - Every Mind Matters

Most families have experienced upheaval in their daily lives during the pandemic and may require support or advice on how to deal with stress, anxiety, and loneliness. If you need support for your own mental health, or have concerns about someone else’s emotional wellbeing, advice developed in partnership with leading mental health charities is available on the Every Mind Matters website. For mental wellbeing support locally visit Bromley Well.

Coronavirus

Bromley Covid-19 outbreak control plan 

Bromley Council’s public health team, in common with all councils countrywide, has been asked by government to use its knowledge and expertise to put together a Covid-19 local outbreak control plan. This builds on our experience in infectious disease control and our knowledge and understanding of the borough.

The public health team has worked with partners and other organisations locally to devise this plan as a live document that will be regularly updated to reflect emerging local trends and to outline any actions that may be required to contain an outbreak and mitigate the spread of the virus. Standard operating procedures and action plans underpin this document, but as these will change daily, they are not included within the document.

NHS Test and Trace

Contact tracing is crucial to the effort to control outbreaks in the borough, so we are supporting NHS Test and Trace. We are also supporting businesses selling food and drink to record who is visiting their restaurants and cafes.
