Bucks County Council is looking to establish an integrated lifestyle service so that residents don't have to wait for an appointment with their GP to get health support and advice.
'Live Well Stay Well' will be officially launched on Thursday 24th May with a formal presentation at the Waterside Theatre in Aylesbury to 160 representatives of health-related groups and organisations.
Noel Brown, Cabinet Member for Community Engagement and Public Health said, "Live Well Stay Well, which went live on 1st April and has already helped hundreds of people, offers a single point of contact to support residents who want to lose weight, quit smoking, get more active, drink less alcohol, feel happier or manage their diabetes. This service provides expert support and advice to ensure people achieve their personal goals".
It also offers outreach NHS health checks, help for families to manage children's weight, and help with the emotional challenges of managing a long term condition.
Residents can be referred by a professional or simply access the site themselves, and most of the support services on offer are free.
Online support will be available for everyone, with more intensive phone or face-to-face help for those who might need the most support, for example, trying to stop smoking or lose weight.
Residents may also be referred or signposted via the website to a range of external services such as physical activity opportunities, diabetes management and alcohol reduction.

The service has been commissioned by Buckinghamshire County Council's Public Health Team, with the single point of access element commissioned in partnership with the Buckinghamshire Clinical Commissioning Group.
