This tool gives you daily messages, and keeps track of how much you’re saving and how many days it’s been since your last cigarette. Great motivators for staying smokefree.

Eating Well & Exercise

We’re bombarded with scare stories about weight, from size zero to the obesity ‘epidemic’. But a healthy body is determined by different factors for each of us.

Chrysalis, our adult weight management programme offers you a real opportunity to change your lifestyle, have a better diet and become more active and thereby lead a healthier, happier and in many cases, a longer life.

We can offer a multitude of related Chrysalis programmes to help you to take control of your weight and to then continue to either maintain or lose weight.

If you are interested in finding out more about the programme then speak to a doctor, nurse or at reception.
