HEALTH chiefs are asking people in Rotherham what they think could be done to help people adopt a healthier lifestyle.
Staff at NHS Rotherham want to hear from people who have tips about adopting a healthier lifestyle, what motivated them and what support they think is necessary.
The NHS Rotherham Health Promotion team will be visiting supermarkets and health centres across the borough to hear people's experiences and find out what else they want.
Gill Harrison, NHS Rotherham public health specialist, said that the consultation was part of a wider project in Rotherham to help people lose weight and feel great.
"We want to hear from people living in Rotherham about what they have done to improve their health and what NHS Rotherham can do to support them further,” she said.
“The smallest changes, such as reducing salt in your diet or walking to the shops can often lead to some of the biggest improvements in health and we want to hear from local people if they have made small changes which have made a big difference.
"The information we collect over the next couple of months will help NHS Rotherham to understand what it is local people need to maintain a healthy weight and what NHS Rotherham can do to help them with their lifestyle goals."
The Healthy Lifestyles Survey is available online at the new NHS Rotherham website www.rotherham.nhs.uk.
