Lighten up this new year with the Calderdale Healthy Weight Service
Make a new year’s resolution that will last a life time with support and motivation from South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust’s Healthy Weight Service.
The Healthy Weight programme supports people to make changes to their lifestyle to become healthier and fitter. The service offers up to 6 months of one-to-one and group support.
The team carry out an initial health check of the client’s lifestyle, before tailoring a programme of support according to the individual needs. Each client is supported through the one-to-one sessions by their own healthy weight advisor.
The clinics are held at community venues and GP practices across Calderdale and people interested in accessing the service can book an appointment through their local GP Practice or contact the Healthy Lifestyles Team on 01422 281529 or 01422 281394 for further information.
Marie Conway, Acting Head of Calderdale Health Improvement at the Trust said, "The Healthy Weight Service has already helped over 1,500 Calderdale residents lose 5% of their body weight and sustain this weight loss.
"As well as the healthy weight clinics, the service has also set up a new text service to provide support, advice and information on healthy lifestyle issues. Simply text C4L to 81025 and specific contact details of local services will be provided for people to contact."
Helen Wright, Team Manager at the Change4Life Information Shop said, "The Healthy Improvement Service in Calderdale will continue to offer healthy lifestyles advice to local people, now the Change4Life Information Shop in Halifax town centre has closed. The Change4Life Information Shop had been open for the last two years, and helped over 2,000 people make healthy changes to their lifestyle. Our team has had a brilliant time supporting our clients, and are really proud of what we have achieved as a team. We realise how important it is that the Change4Life messages continue to be promoted, and that’s why we’re really pleased that the new text service is in place."
