ChatHealth Warrington: is a secure text messaging service for young people, parents and carers. The service provides information, advice and support on a range of health and wellbeing issues.

The service does not aim to replace face to face contacts, rather increase choice for service users about how they access advice from a health professional and provides a new line of communication as face to face contact is reduced.

The ChatHealth text number will operate Monday-Friday from 9am until 5pm.

Messages will be responded to within 24 hours during this period. Outside these hours, service users will receive a ‘bounce back’ text message indicating that they will receive a response when the line re-opens.

The site has been developed for people who live or work in Warrington, so some of the services and resources are only for people in Warrington.
