Traditionally New Year is the time when we all resolve to lose weight, be more active, give up smoking and reduce our alcohol consumption. Many people are already thinking that after the holiday period they will make changes to their lifestyle. But change is hard.
Since April 2016 a new service – The Essex Lifestyle Service - has been available for all Essex residents. It can help people to make changes that will enable them to live longer, healthier lives. The Essex Lifestyle Team’s advice is that your New Year’s resolutions are more likely to succeed if you make a plan and get help and support.
The service can help with:
Ellen Van Gemmert, Health Development Manager at Provide said :
“If you are aiming to lose weight, become more active, or want to give up smoking or reduce your alcohol consumption, then you are far more likely to succeed with our help. A member of our team will work with you to develop a plan and can offer support, motivation and, in some cases, medication. We can also help people who are experiencing loneliness, depression or isolation. These issues can affect not only a person’s mental and emotional well-being but also their physical health. I would urge people to get in contact with our service sooner rather than later. Change is hard but we can help you make lasting changes to your lifestyle.”

In response to the outbreak and following the latest government guidance we are reviewing how we deliver all our services, and will be stopping all but the most clinically essential face to face appointments.
Our services are currently reviewing their lists and we will update our service users if this will affect them. Where possible alternative ways of delivering care or supporting people will be put in place, but as our capacity changes we will, out of necessity, suspend delivery of some services completely.
Our organisation is part of the My Care Record approach which is supporting the work of health and care organisations across the East of England as they respond to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. For example, we are working to make sure doctors, nurses and co-ordination staff at places you may receive advice or treatment can see important information from your patient record. This could include NHS treatment centres such as the London NHS Nightingale Hospital. This will make it easier and faster for them to deliver effective care.
