Weight Management Services in Guernsey

The Committee for Health and Social Care are seeking your views on what you want to see from future weight management services in Guernsey.

With the variety of news articles circulating about all the different diets, exercise programmes and get fit quick organisations out there, it can be hard sometimes for anyone to see the wood through the trees and find a strategy that works for them in terms of their long term health.

This is even more concerning considering that obesity is an ever growing problem in the UK and in Guernsey. In 2013, it was identified that over half of adults in Guernsey were either overweight or obese and males were more likely to be classed as being overweight or obese than females. This is not an unusual result and has caused the NHS to implement strategies like the Diabetes Prevention Programme to help fight the growing obesity epidemic.

In light of this problem, it is vital that effective and accessible strategies are developed to help as many islanders as possible.

This consultation is aimed to investigate what services people have used to manage their weight before, and it will aim to discover what sorts of services people would want to see from the States in the future. This consultation will help inform the Healthy Weight Strategy and will be used to advise in future weight management strategies in the island.

An online survey has been developed for this consultation however paper copies are available at Kings Club, Beau Sejour and GP surgeries,  or you can contact us via the details below to ask for a copy. Along with the survey, by following the link you have the opportunity to find out 'what physical activity/personality type are you?' and ideas for activities in the island that may be best suited to you!

The survey can be completed online by visiting: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/gsyweightmanagement2017

The survey for this consultation closed on 30th November 2017. The results of this survey have been published and can be found in the downloads section on this page.

Further information on Guernsey's Healthy Weight Strategy can be found at https://gov.gg/article/120426/Healthy-Weight-Strategy

Should you require any further information, please contact us by emailing Myfanwy.Datta@gov.gg or call 01481 707492.

If you would like to receive an email and/or text notification when the next consultation becomes available (or you wish to stop receiving those notifications), please log in or register here.
