New Norfolk & Waveney website and helpline to help people lead a healthier lifestyle

A new website and helpline have been launched to help people in Norfolk make healthy changes to their lives.

Provided by NHS Norfolk and Waveney's public health team, Norfolk's Living Well initiative brings together services that are funded or supported by the organisation to help people lead a healthier lifestyle.

Services vary from weight management programmes for children to support for adults to quit smoking. Information is also available for anyone who would like to help their community or organisation to become healthier, such as teachers, healthcare workers or employers.

Lucy Macleod, consultant in public health for NHS Norfolk and Waveney, said: 'The NHS doesn't just treat illness and injuries, it's also here to help you to make healthy choices so that you can avoid some preventable illnesses and diseases in the future.

'I'm really excited about the launch of Norfolk's Living Well. By providing a one-stop shop for our health improvement services we hope to help more people than ever to get healthier in Norfolk and Waveney.'
