Choose to Change is a specialist weight management service that helps adults make lifestyle changes that will enable them to lose weight and improve their health.
The Choose to Change programme is totally different to traditional weight loss programmes. It encourages lifelong changes to eating habits rather than short term diets. It helps people to overcome their barriers to weight loss, make sensible food choices and become more active. It has produced many successful results.
Access to the service is via a health professional referral such as a GP, nurse or a dietitian. The service is free to all adults over 18 years old and has been commissioned by the following areas:
Blackpool, Bury*, Manchester, Oldham, Salford, Tameside and Glossop
*In Bury the service is only available to those on the bariatric pathway. Further information on the eligibility criteria can be found by clicking here>
For anyone looking for further information, an open evening has been arranged for Thursday, 6th March 2014, 6pm at Broughton Hub, Rigby Street, Salford, M7 2BR. This will be a great opportunity to meet the team and hear more about the service. Peer supporters who have completed the programme will be happy to answer any of your questions. You can ring 01204 570 999 to book a place or simply turn up on the night.
