NHS staff are now able to sign up to the NHS Digital Weight Management Programme (DWMP). This is a brand new service for people who would like to lose weight and improve their health and wellbeing.
Those staff who have a BMI of 30 or greater (or 27.5 or greater for staff from Black, Asian and other minority ethnic groups), can now access a free, 12-week, online weight management programme which is personally tailored to support their journey to a healthier lifestyle.
Helping NHS staff to eat healthily and be active is part of a wider commitment to improve the health and wellbeing of our most important resource. Keeping healthy and active can be hard, especially with the demands of a busy job, but this digital programme can help staff make those small changes, one step at a time.
Staff who are interested can find out more information and self register on the NHS England website.
