About protecting your health
We have a role in assuring the provision of health protection services locally in Kingston. These services ensure that everyone is protected from threats to their health from infectious disease and environmental hazards such as radiation, chemicals and poisons.
These services are provided by Public Health England (PHE). The local PHE team works closely with our public health team to ensure that any local threats to health can be fully addressed.
Three key areas of this are immunisations, screening and health visiting.
Our Public Health team is holding a day of free advice and support on health and wellbeing, confidential sexual health screenings and NHS health checks (for over 40s) on Thursday 17 September.
