From Ryedale District Council:
A Tier 2 Weight Management Service has been launched in Ryedale, as part of efforts to help improve the health and wellbeing of local communities. (Tier 2 services cover “lifestyle interventions”.)
The newly commissioned service was launched on 16 November 2015, and is being managed by Everyone Active, in partnership with the Council, utilising funding provided by North Yorkshire County Council. It is available for adults who live in Ryedale, who are overweight, or at high risk of obesity (BMI of over 25) and want to make a change in their lifestyle.
The service is free and consists of a 12 week ‘rolling’ support programme, aimed at helping people make informed decisions regarding their weight and to live a healthier lifestyle. The programme consists of a 90 minute session per week. The session will be split into a 45 minute physical activity session (low intensity) and 45 minute nutritional information session.
The service, which was previously only available through a GP referral, has now been extended to allow self referrals. If you think you maybe eligible for this programme, or require further information, please visit Everyone Active, email firstname.lastname@example.org , or phone 01642 447720.
