PHE Re-launch Better Health Campaign
The Public Health England Better Health campaign is returned in July 2021 with positive and motivating messages to support the nation to take action to improve their health. The campaign shows the public the simple steps they can take to help them feel better.
Recent research at the start of 2021 revealed that 80% of adults plan to make at least one change to their health and wellbeing moving forward.
The new campaign offers free evidence-based support and guidance to those working towards a healthier weight. There are a variety of NHS endorsed apps which will help people to introduce changes that will help them eat better and get active this summer, including the newly updated NHS Weight Loss Plan app.
The re-launched of this campaign comes at a time when 5.3 million patients are currently on waiting lists for diagnostics and surgical procedures. As CPOC's evidence reviews have shown being as fit as possible for surgery can reduce post-operative complications by up to 80%.
The Better Health website nhs.uk/BetterHealth has information and tools available to help get people started.
