ChatHealth - a text service for 11-19 year olds in Bedfordshire

You can now text our school nurses on 07507 331450 to ask any health related questions you might have including mental health, drugs, relationships, healthy eating and much more.

ChatHealth is an easy, confidential and anonymous way to ask questions about your health. Our team will be there to answer your text from 9am to 4.30pm, Monday to Friday (except bank holidays). Please note, we will be closed on Monday the 19th of September due to the additional bank holiday.

Budding young rap artist Jayden, from Luton, has written and produced a rap for ChatHealth. The rap was created following a competition in February directed at young people to design a rap to encourage young people across Beds and Luton talk about relationships, bullying and healthy eating among other issues through direct, confidential texts with their school nurses.

Confidentiality and safety disclaimer

We do not usually inform your parents, or anyone else if you contact our nurses. We might inform someone if we were concerned about your safety, but we would usually speak to you first. Your messages are stored and can be seen by other healthcare staff who follow the same confidentiality rules. We aim to reply to you within one working day and you should get an immediate bounce-back to confirm we’ve received your text. Texts will not be seen outside of normal working hours. If you need help before you hear back from us, contact a professional or your doctor. Our text number does not receive voice calls or MMS picture messages. We support messaging from UK mobile numbers only (which does not include messages sent from landlines, international mobile numbers and some 'number masking' mobile apps). To find out what we do with your information, please visit NHS CCS privacy notice. Prevent the school nurse from sending messages to you by texting STOP to our number.

Did you spot our new ChatHealth design?

We recently ran a competition and invited young people from across Luton and Bedfordshire to design our new designs.  We received loads of fantasic entries, and a selection of them can be found in the video below.  The panel of young people chose a design by Andrea, aged 10 because they felt her poster captured the feel of ChatHealth from a young person’s point of view. Her winning poster is now being used as the face of the Luton and Beds ChatHealth campaign and is being displayed across our social media sites.
