Digital weight management programme for NHS staff

There is never a better time to look after your health and wellbeing, so this January, NHS England are encouraging NHS staff to sign up to take part in the NHS Digital Weight Management Programme as part of a wider commitment to help people living with obesity who want to improve their health.

The programme provides online access to a 12-week weight management plan to support you on your journey to a healthier lifestyle. As a digital programme, it can be used anywhere, allowing you to complete the programme in your own time.

Each plan provides recipes and nutrition advice, wellbeing support and tips to boost activity levels. The NHS is working with some well-known weight-management organisations like Liva, MoreLife, Oviva, Second Nature, Slimming World and Xyla Health & Wellbeing to deliver this programme.

It can be tough to make changes, but with this online plan you can take control of your weight and help reduce the risk of ill health. Join thousands of your colleagues and take the first step in improving your health today!

Jonathan Valabhji, NHS England’s National Clinical Director for Diabetes and Obesity said:

“Supporting our NHS staff this year is one of our top priorities. The NHS Digital Weight Management Programme offers online access to weight management plans for our NHS staff living with obesity.

Thousands of NHS colleagues have taken the first step in signing up to the programme to support their health and wellbeing and are seeing the benefits to their lives already.” You can read more and sign up here: Digital weight management programme for NHS staff
