HealthInfo Canterbury is an easy-to-use health information website just for the people of Canterbury. You may have seen it before but when was the last time you took a look?
HealthInfo is revamped and is now much better looking and even easier to use. On it, you'll find up-to-date information about many conditions and diseases that can help you to look after your own health and that of people close to you. You can trust the information as it's all written or approved by local health professionals.
The new look HealthInfo is also the place to go if you want to know how to stay fit and well. On the winter wellness page, you can find a wealth of information about how to stay healthy this winter. It's got information on coughs and colds (including whooping cough), flu and how the colder weather affects people with chronic conditions. There's also advice on how to avoid catching germs from other people and how to stop spreading illness among your friends and family.
HealthInfo is provided by the Canterbury District Health Board to help you manage you own health but it does not take the place of a medical consultation. If you have concerns about your health see your general practice team for individual advice.
