This month, Chelmsley Wood and Hobs Moat libraries have celebrated the launch of their new Health Hubs, providing various facilities from which Solihull residents can benefit.
In partnership with Solihull Public Health and Health Exchange, both libraries now have a designated health area which will enable residents to receive health checks from qualified Health Trainers, health information from a variety of literature, and have full access to Health Exchange’s website and services via new Kiosks.
Health Exchange’s Operations Director, Sue Turton, who attended the launch said: “These hubs add great benefit to the local community as they allow us to give residents access to health information 24/7. They also give our Health Trainers a local base from which to see clients on a regular basis”.
The Mayor of Solihull, Councillor Glenis Slater, who also attended the launch to find out more about what was on offer, commented: “The free and easy access to health-related information at the Health Hubs will better empower residents to take control of their own wellbeing. It is a great pleasure to introduce something like this to our borough.”
Healthcare professionals, members of local community groups and library goers were among those celebrating the opening of the Hubs.
