Lifestyle Management

The health harm and cost of obesity and its related diseases are so great that it is equivalent to smoking.

Being overweight is the second biggest cause of cancer, after smoking, and is the major cause of Type 2 diabetes – a disease where the treatment and complications cost nine per cent of the NHS budget annually.

NHS Scarborough and Ryedale CCG and our public health partners are committed to helping people quit smoking, exercise more and maintain a healthy weight.

This also forms part of our commitment through the Ambition For Health partnership.
