weight patient support programme

The UK has the highest levels of obesity in Western Europe, more than trebling in the last 30 years. Maintaining a healthy weight and committing to some form of exercise can have a positive effect on life expectancy as well as reducing the risk of other conditions such as type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, stroke, heart disease and cancer. And it’s not just about eating less and exercising more; maintaining a healthy weight is about a shift in mind set and understanding more about the benefits of healthier food choices and exercise.

Our talkhealth weight patient support programme (PSPs) are suitable for all those who are living with weight gain issues, whether you have recently become overweight or you have been overweight for a significant length of time, and the carers of someone who has weight gain issues.

talkhealth patient support programmes (PSPs) offer you the chance to receive free online information, support and advice that it is specific to your condition. While on the programme you will receive an email once a week which will provide you with a link to new downloadable information such as hints and tips, lifestyle advice and up to date information from experts. The information we have created for this programme has been designed to enable you to better manage your condition and symptoms more effectively as well as improving your quality of life:

PSPs will last for around 3 to 6 months, and you are free to join and unsubscribe from the programme at any time.
