Air Quality Alert Service
People with asthma, emphysema, bronchitis, heart disease and angina are more at risk from high levels of air pollution. If you suffer, or you are a parent or carer for someone with these symptoms, you can register with AirTEXT.
AirTEXT is a unique air quality information service, which is designed to send free pollution alerts and health advice by text, email or voicemail on days of elevated air pollution. These alerts aren’t designed to panic you but to help you understand symptoms, have any necessary medication at hand and to prepare your day ahead to reduce the likelihood of any impacts.Sign up now

After joining a well-balance class, I feel more confident doing stairs. I found the exercises were suitable to my problem of bad balance. The instructors were very friendly, dedicated and ready to give one to one support anytime I need it.

I just came to do shopping at Asda and saw the S4H van. The thing that surprised me was being able to have an NHS Health Check in a van, which was good as it was a drop-in session, with no need to book an appointment. I am 43 so I had started to think about my health more. Having an NHS Health Check made me realise that I am not that active, so I am going to join a gym.

We joined to find out how to be healthy as a family, the information, recipes and teachers were very good. This is a fantastic and lifestyle changing club for young children.

I joined Eat4Health because I needed to lose weight and needed support to do so. I have tried other weight loss programmes in the past which would normally begin well but they never really taught me to change and do exercise they just told me what to eat and what not to eat but not why. I eat more fruit and vegetables and am more aware of my calorie intake and the need for physical activity. My blood pressure has lowered along with my BMI. I would recommend this service to others to make changes for life not just a few months.

Low Emission Strategy
Slough, like many urban areas in the UK, experiences elevated levels of air pollution which have a measurable impact on the health of the local population. While there are several factors contributing to our local air quality, including heating and energy production and the cross-boundary transportation of pollution, the emissions from road transport vehicles are the most significant source.Find out more
