About Us

The Middlesex-London Health Unit is a key part of the local health system.

Our goal is to watch for, identify and address the public health issues that can affect you, your family and your neighbours. We promote healthy living and identify community needs. Health Unit staff members work in schools and in immunization clinics; they work with families to support their needs; they also inspect restaurants and businesses that sell food, swimming pools, tattoo shops, hairdressers, nail salons, spas and more. In addition, members of this team of professionals provide dental services to people who need them, do research in our communities and work with politicians and decision makers to create bylaws and guidelines that lead to healthier communities.

Programs and Services

Like the other 35 health units in Ontario, the Middlesex-London Health Unit delivers programs and services that are part of the Health Protection and Promotion Act (HPPA) to the people who live in London and Middlesex County. The Health Unit does this according to a set of rules called the Ontario Public Health Standards.

 

 
 

Location

The Health Unit provides these services and programs at its offices in downtown London and in Strathroy. The downtown London office is at 50 King Street near the forks of the Thames River. This is where you can get immunized, access dental health programs, sexual health and family planning services and also where you can take several classes and workshops. Many of these services are also offered at the Health Unit’s Strathroy office located in the Kenwick Mall at 51 Front Street.
