Talk Wellbeing 

Starting from the summer of 2023, we are offering our new ‘Talk Wellbeing’ service to communities around Herefordshire. This service will be offered via pop-up clinics in Hereford and the market towns, as well as via a specially adapted van that will visit many sites throughout the county.

Our experienced and friendly healthcare professionals will be out and about to offer a range of NHS services aimed to help people improve their health and wellbeing.  These services include:

  • How to reduce risk of heart disease and stroke
  • Cholesterol checks
  • Blood pressure checks
  • Practical advice on how to make changes to your health
  • Signposting to services and community groups that are available

In addition to offering Health Checks for anyone aged 18 or over who lives or works in Herefordshire, you will be able to talk to our team about any issues that are affecting your health and wellbeing. They will then be able to signpost you to additional services or support that can help.

If you’re not currently registered with a GP Practice, our team will also be able to support you to get registered.

Please see below for the latest dates and venues. Keep checking back if none are listed below as the programme is updated regularly.

Health and Wellbeing Coaches

Health and Wellbeing Coaches spend time with patients to talk in a non-judgemental way about things that may be impacting on their health and wellbeing.

The conversations can help support patients to overcome the barriers preventing them from reaching their health goals.

Health and Wellbeing Coaches put their patients first and can discuss such things as:

  • Confidence and independence
  • Stress
  • Self-esteem, anxiety and depression
  • Sleep and mindfulness
  • Activity and exercise
  • Food and nutrition

NHS Health Checks

In partnership with all Herefordshire GP practices, Taurus Healthcare supports NHS Health Checks throughout the county. These are designed to spot the early signs of certain conditions that may affect your health and/or quality of life. For example, heart disease, type 2 diabetes and stroke.

NHS Health Checks are offered to adults in England, aged 40-74 who do not have any pre-existing health conditions. Every five years, you can expect to be invited for your free Health Check, which will take place at your GP surgery or at a central location run by Taurus.

At the Health Check, an experienced NHS healthcare professional will ask you some questions and undertake some quick and pain-free health checks. These will include taking your blood pressure, finding out your cholesterol level and measuring your height and weight. They will then explain to you what your results mean and suggest any further actions that may be needed to improve your health and wellbeing.

You will receive a letter from your surgery inviting you to come forward for your check. If you haven’t received a letter, do not have any pre-existing health conditions and have not been for a Health Check within the last five years, please ask for more information from your GP surgery reception team.
