Weight Matters

weight-matters-logo.jpg The Healthy Weight Programme is a Health Promotion Service programme where three projects have merged. We now have a multi disciplinary team, which can cater for a whole range of needs rather than being specific to one area of work, including Adult Weight Management, Healthy Eating and Physical Activity.

By merging these three programmes we have been able to extend the support and range of healthy weight interventions we can offer to health professionals and their patients.which includes a self help website for adults who want to manage their own weight and a rolling programme of Weight Matters Groups in the community. The website includes a range of tools which patients and staff may find helpful to support overweight and obese individuals.

Over 50% of GP practices in Cornwall are now working with our programme to support overweight and obese patients.

Please book an appointment with one of our key referrers today (Mary Helley or Helen Waterfield) to be referred to the scheme.

Unfortunately Weight Watcher and Slimming World vouchers are no longer available.
