Come and see how local health trainers could help you boost your health


NHS health trainers in Wakefield are inviting local people to visit them at the Asda store in South Elmsall on Tuesday 24th January to find out how easy it is to make simple changes that can improve their health and wellbeing.

South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust provides health trainers to offer support, motivation and encouragement to anyone in the local area that would like to make healthy changes to their lifestyle.

Each health trainer is a qualified specialist that works with people on a one-to-one basis and can help with a variety of issues including weight management, healthy eating, stress, stopping smoking, physical activity and alcohol. They help individuals to set realistic personal goals and find other services that may benefit and help them to maintain the lifelong changes they’ve made so far.

Linda Cross a health trainer with the team said, "I am really looking forward to being part of this information event as it will be a great opportunity to speak to local people about ways they would like to improve their health in 2012 and offer advice about how they could do this. Our team work with individuals on a one to one basis to help them achieve goals that can make a big difference to their lives."

Linda and her colleague Amanda will be at the Asda store from 9am – 12pm on Tuesday 24th January.
