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

Are you aged 11-19, living in Luton, and looking for health advice?

You can now text the Luton School Nurse Service on 07520 616070 to ask health related questions you might have including mental health, drugs, relationships, healthy eating and much more.

ChatHealth is an easy, confidential, anonymous way to ask questions about your health, and our Luton school nurse team will be there to answer your text from 9am to 4pm, Monday to Friday (except bank holidays).

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.

Confidentiality and safety disclaimer

We do not usually inform your parents, teachers or anyone else if you contact the school nurse. 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 received your text. Normal working hours are 09:00-16:00 Monday – Friday (except bank holidays), texts will not be seen outside of this time. If you need help before you hear back from us, contact a member of school staff, your GP, call NHS 111 or Childline on 0800 1111. And if it is an emergency, dial 999 or visit A&E. 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 view our NHS privacy notice please internet search: “NHS CCS privacy notice” or use this link bit.ly/nhsprivacynotice. Prevent the school nurse from sending messages to you by texting STOP to our number. Please respect your school’s mobile phone policy. Messages are charged at your usual rate.
