We are MyHealth
Empowering Hillingdon patients to take control of their health
MyHealth started with a simple mission, to empower patients. In 2014 we started small with a few people helping them eat a healthier diet which could help lower their blood sugar.
From this an idea grew, what if we could work with Hillingdon patients, local organisations and local GP’s to build workshops that gave information on long term condition’s, where usually there is no time to discuss in an appointment.
So that’s what we did.
Over the past 6 years and over 8 thousand patients later going from strength to strength, the programme has expanded to support long term conditions such as Diabetes type 2, COPD (respiratory breathing conditions), Children’s Asthma and Healthy Heart.
In addition we have now achieved an official accreditation for our Diabetes type 2 and Pre-Diabetes workshop’s. We are fully realising our goal of empowering patients with the knowledge of how to self-manage their conditions and take back more control in their life.
How is MyHealth different from everyone else ?

The MyHealth website has been created to provide local people with information and advice on managing their conditions and improving their health and wellbeing and a useful directory of ‘community connections’ featuring support, self-help and activity groups in Hillingdon.
There are links to the major charities including Age UK, Diabetes UK, Asthma UK and British Lung Foundation as well as a growing list of local charities, active community groups and other support services.
