Welcome to talkhealth

talkhealth is one of the UK’s leading online social health communities, providing FREE interactive support and information on a wide range of health conditions and subjects. It is a platform for you to ‘have your say’ on current health issues and a place to find in-depth and trusted information. talkhealth allows you the opportunity to take control in decisions concerning your health and wellbeing in a positive way.

We offer specific health hubs that have indepth information on each condition, such as eczema, allergy, acne, psoriasis, respiratory (asthma, COPD and lung cancer), dementia, IBS and weight. We also cover a full range of topics under women's health, including breast cancer, menopause, gynae and hair loss to name a few topics. Our men's health section features topics such as high cholesterol, erectile dysfunction and prostate cancer. We have now launched children's health; we have started with topics ranging from bed wetting to meningitis and mumps but hope to expand significantly based on your feedback. Keep an eye out for the launch of our addiction hub, coming soon!

talkhealth's active community is made up of a wide range of people, but all with the common goal of both seeking to understand health issues better and to also openly share experiences and knowledge to help and support others. There are many ways to engage with the community, from reading others life stories, to hearing about peoples day to day life through the talkhealth bloggers network. Talking directly with others through our daily forums to asking medical experts advice on specific health topics in our monthly Online Clinic service are just a few of the ways to get actively involved with the talkhealth community.

The team at talkhealth take great care to promote a safe, friendly and trustworthy environment across all our community activities. However it is our members and supporters across all our social media platforms and YOU who are the ones that make talkhealth such a great support environment and resource.
