Service helping Spalding-area residents get their health back on track
Residents from across Lincolnshire will have more opportunity than ever to get healthy this year, thanks to the One You Lincolnshire service.
As One You Lincolnshire approaches its one year anniversary, the team are able to offer residents the opportunity even more ways to refer into the service and get their health on track.
As the county begins to emerge from the COVID-19 lockdown and residents begin to consider their plans around their own health, One You Lincolnshire have several ways in which they can assist.
Head of service Dan Rogers said: “We have been working with the county council in recent weeks to offer residents more ways than ever to enter the service and improve their health and wellbeing in the coming months.
“Whilst you can still access our services with a referral from your GP or other health care professional, we’re delighted that you can now self refer into a number of our different pathways.
“Our staff are keen to help to positively impact the health and wellbeing of the residents in these unprecedented times.
“The team are ready to help you Go Smoke free, Move More, Drink Less and Lose Weight and Eat Well, so get in touch today!”
• One You Lincolnshire can now accept self-referrals for clients with a long-term health condition (based on the presentation of evidence such as a prescription or letter from a GP or Health Trust).
• You can also self-refer if you match certain criteria (BMI over 30, undertaking less than 150 minutes of physical activity, consuming more than 14 units of alcohol per week), as long as you live in, and have a GP based in, the county.
• Residents continue to be able to self-refer into the Stop Smoking pathway.
