Help - My Well

My Well is your personalised user account which allows you to manage your work on Health Well. It covers the complete Health Well website including Health Well’s hubs (the Obesity Hub or Fuel Poverty Hub).



You do not have to be logged in to visit Health Well – you only need to be logged in if you want to use the useful extra tools available to registered users.

To set up your My Well account you must first register . After you’ve received your username and password, you can log in to access your My Well page. Many of the pages across the website will be customised to your account settings.
