We have started moving content to our new website at:

COVID-19 (Coronavirus info)

Information and guidance for public, NHSGGC staff, and community-based services.  Hospital visiting restrictions now in place.

General Health and Wellbeing

Your general health and wellbeing are essential to enjoying life and can have a big impact on your MSK condition; on how it developed and also in helping you to manage it and prevent it from coming back. 

At this time, you may be looking for COVID-19 related information. This is evidence based information compiled by our physiotherapy colleagues which we hope will be helpful.


The NHS GG&C Health Improvement site below is a good place to start if you are looking for something in particular, including advice about smoking, weight, literacy and physical activity.  These resources are updated regularly.

The Health and Wellbeing directory allows you to search by topic, for example 'alcohol' and has a huge range of resources.  For more of a national perspective, try NHS Inform.  In addition, we have gathered some resources on a range of topics that may be helpful for you.  Please have a look below:
