Health and wellbeing online resources

Book lists, online activities and other resources that can help you maintain your health and wellbeing.

Digital Health Hub

We can help you with the skills you need to access online health services. This includes things like how to make an online appointment with a GP and ordering repeat prescriptions online.

We can also show you how to find reliable health information on NHS websites and NHS apps.

These are one-to-one sessions in person in Norfolk Libraries, or online over Zoom. (We can even help you get started with Zoom!)
