This website aims to empower Camden residents with the confidence and information to:

• Look after themselves when they can, and visit the GP or other healthcare service when they need to
• Give people greater control of their own health
• Encourage healthy behaviours that help prevent ill health in the long-term

In many cases people can take care of their minor ailments, reducing the number of GP consultations and enabling GPs to focus on caring for higher risk patients.

More cost-effective use of stretched NHS resources allows money to be spent where it’s most needed and improve health outcomes.

Furthermore, increased personal responsibility around healthcare helps improve people’s health and wellbeing and better manage long-term conditions when they do develop.

Visit One You Camden for a range of health advice, support, and digital apps for adults of all ages.
