Wiltshire Health Improvement Hub are excited to this week launch our new group weight management programme called Healthy Us. Healthy Us is a free 12 week course open to anyone living in Wiltshire, aged 18 or over, with a BMI of 28 or above (To measure BMI please use the NHS BMI calculator).
Courses will be held throughout the year and will be delivered virtually over Microsoft Teams. We plan to also hold face to face group courses around the county when circumstances allow, and it is safe to do so. We are now accepting referrals for the virtual courses starting in January 2021 which will run on the following days and times:
- Tuesdays 11am
- Wednesdays 7pm
- Thursdays 1pm
- Thursdays 7pm
For further information about course start dates, please get in touch using the contact information below.
We are fortunate to be working with IAPT, who will provide evidence based psychological support to attendees. IAPT will be delivering two sessions during each course looking at emotional eating and wellbeing. The course will support participants to eat well, move more and feel better. Each interactive session is one hour and covers topics such as balanced nutrition, portion sizes, eating out, physical activity and healthy habits for life.
The programme is designed to give participants the tools they require to make small but sustainable changes that can be maintained long term. We will support participants to lose weight and maintain this weight loss.
Healthy Us is one of the services that make up the recently launched Wiltshire Health Improvement Hub, a single point of access for referrals to the Health Improvement coaches (adult health and mental wellbeing service), Healthy Me (child and family weight management service), and Healthy Us.
