Cambridgeshire Health Weight Strategy - have your say

Local residents are being urged to share their views on a healthy weight strategy aiming to help tackle the large numbers of people becoming overweight or obese.

The Cambridgeshire Health Weight Strategy comes at a time of significant and rising costs related to unhealthy weight. The costs of obesity include £5.1 billion to the NHS and other costs such as social care and days of sickness amount to £27 billion.

Communities and local organisations are being asked their views on a Strategy to reduce unhealthy weight locally. It calls for action to support children and adults achieve and maintain a healthy weight.

The consultation starts on 15th August 2016. People can give their views via the online survey.
