Physical Health and Activity
Public Health England Campaign: Better Health
Public Health England has launched a major adult health campaign to seize the opportunity for a national reset moment.
COVID-19 has affected the whole country; for almost everyone, life has had to fundamentally change. But it has also prompted many people to reflect and think more seriously about their health.
The Better Health campaign will kick off by supporting individuals on their weight loss journey. For the first week, the campaign will highlight the links between weight and COVID-19. We will then move onto the motivate phase of the campaign in week 2, supporting physical activity and nutrition messages. Additional resources will be added to the Campaign Resource Centre so do keep an eye out.

Modern life can make it hard to be healthy, with Type 2 diabetes adding to this challenge. Making small lifestyle changes can help you reduce your risk even if Type 2 Diabetes is in your family history.
