Healthy eating

What we eat, and how much, is so important for our health and our waistlines!  Here are some links to information that you may find helpful. The NHS One You website has lots of information to help us all make some positive changes to our eating habits. Check out this colourful Eatwell Guide from the NHS showing the five food groups we should be getting our nutrients from to form a balanced diet.
Information and support is available to help anyone to get the balance right when it comes to food choices, and a healthier relationship with food and diet choices can not only be beneficial for your physical health, but your mental health too.

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.

Local health services

Bromley GPs are there for you for all illnesses not just COVID-19. Please do not ignore symptoms or hesitate to seek out support from Bromley’s GPs and local health services if you're feeling unwell. Your physical and mental health is as important now as it ever was - so even if your concerns are not related to COVID-19, it is important to seek medical advice as and when you need to.
