Change4Life South Tyneside is an innovative wellbeing programme that offers advice and support to help local people lead a healthier life, including:
- stopping smoking
- cutting back on alcohol
- healither eating
- getting more exercise
- mental health & wellbeing
- sexual health
- NHS Health Checks
From June residents will be able to self-refer to gain advice on how they can take small steps to live a healthier and longer life.
Health professionals including GPs will also be able to refer people into the programme which is aimed at tackling health inequalities by taking a life-course approach working with children, adults and families.
The Change4Life wellbeing programme is a key priority for the Council since it took on responsibility for public health in 2013.
