UHNM selected as pilot site for NHS Digital Weight Management Programme

Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent people can now access support to manage their weight through a new online programme.

Anyone aged 18 and over, living in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent, with a BMI indicating they are obese, can refer themselves to the programme.  

The NHS Digital Weight Management Programme provides free, online access to a range of 12-week weight management plans to choose from. Each plan offers tailored advice and support to encourage healthy habits, along with recipes and nutrition advice, wellbeing support and tips to boost activity levels. The programme is working closely with several weight-management organisations to deliver expert advice and knowledge.
