Adult Healthier Lifestyles – Warwickshire Residents survey

Closed 8 May 2022

Opened 2 Apr 2022

Overview

Warwickshire County Council (WCC) currently has contracts for several physical health services, which will end in 2023. WCC will be designing a new service which will focus on improving Warwickshire resident’s physical health. The aim is the new physical health service will provide you, as a Warwickshire resident, with advice and support to help you make healthy lifestyle changes and decisions. This would be related to physical activity, weight management, stop smoking and health checks taking place in General Practices, Pharmacies, and in the community. WCC aim to encourage and support residents to be healthier so that you can prevent and/or reduce the risk of developing long term health conditions, such as cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and obesity. 

About the services 

  • Adult Weight Management on Referral - This service provides a free 12-week programme of weight management support to adults aged 16+. This service is currently delivered by Slimming World and Everyone Health.   
  • Physical Activity on Referral - This service provides a tailored 12-week programme of physical activity within a leisure centre setting. The service is for those with specific health conditions. For more information, please see: https://www.warwickshire.gov.uk/fitter-futures   
  • NHS Health Checks – The NHS Health Check is a prevention programme which aims to reduce the chance of a heart attack, stroke or developing some forms of dementia in people aged 40-74. Eligible Warwickshire residents are invited to a GP NHS Health Check every five years. For more information, please see: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/nhs-health-check/   
  • Stop Smoking – This service provides advice, support and encouragement to help improve your chances of quitting. This service is delivered in certain General Practices, Pharmacies and community providers.
