While the service is now live, due to the current situation with Coronavirus, all weight management (with the exception of maternity services), physical activity and alcohol support is currently postponed to enable Notts County Council to re-prioritise staff and resources to support in their health protection work around the current coronavirus outbreak. Weight management and physical activity referrals can still be made and will be held on a waiting list until the services resume.

 

There will however be ongoing support via the social media channels so be sure to follow the pages for tips and resources on how to maintain your health and wellbeing during this difficult time:
