Public Health Campaigns – Weight Management

If you're overweight, losing weight has many health benefits. Making small, simple changes to what and how much you are eating and drinking can really help you lose the pounds.

From reducing the risk of serious diseases such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease and up to 12 types of cancer, to lowering the chances of being hospitalised with COVID-19, this campaign highlights the serious health conditions which could be prevented by losing excess weight and NHS are offering free support and guidance to achieve this goal.

It is estimated that over 3 in 5 adults are at an increased risk from serious diseases as a result of being overweight. Losing just 5% of body weight can seriously reduce the chance of heart disease and could make all the difference in preventing treatable heart conditions.

The new campaign highlights six benefits that could have a lasting impact on a person’s health by being a healthier weight:

  1. Decreased risk of common cancers (colon, liver, pancreas, kidney)
  2. Lowered risk of increased blood pressure
  3. Reduced risk of heart disease
  4. Less risk of developing diabetes
  5. Less strain from chronic back & joint pain
  6. Decreased risk of being hospitalised or becoming seriously ill with COVID-19
