INNOVATIVE new web pages bringing together a wealth of information to help people in Great Yarmouth and Waveney enjoy a healthy lifestyle have gone live today.

The “healthy lives” section has been added to NHS Great Yarmouth and Waveney's website at www.gywpct.nhs.uk to give people easy, round the clock access to information about a huge range of programmes, courses and initiatives.

Designed as a one-stop-shop, the web pages include details of all of the PCT's healthy eating and exercise programmes, from those aged at children, such as MEND and HENRY, to those for adults, like the Life programmes.

The “healthy lives” section also highlights the work of community health trainers, breastfeeding teams and nutritionists, giving lots of information about the help and advice which they can provide. The mobile food store's timetable is included, along with details of stop smoking services and exercise referral schemes.

As well as giving an overview of all of the available services, the pages also provide contact details for anyone who may want to sign up for a course or find out more information.

Dr Alistair Lipp, director of public health at NHS Great Yarmouth and Waveney, said: “These new web pages will make accessing information about the raft of healthy living initiatives we offer extremely easy and convenient.

“We hope that as many people as possible will visit the website to see how they could benefit from the wide range of services available.

“Many of the conditions which can cause so much misery are preventable and could be avoided by leading a healthy lifestyle. These web pages should give people the inspiration to take simple steps to help them do just that.”
