MOHS Workplace Health is pleased to support and promote the West Midlands Health Information Week this week.
Health Information Week is a campaign throughout the West Midlands to improve access to health information. In the West Midlands region staff from local authorities, public libraries, NHS, voluntary sector, independent information and advice centres have all been working together to make their health resources more available to the public.
In most areas local libraries and information centres will have extra health information available, leaflets to take away or sessions to show you how to use the computer to find good quality health information. Look out for posters in your area or visit your local library to find out more. A report is available from Health Information Week 2005 and 2006 and 2007 and 2008 and 2009.
