Jim Cunningham MP was happy to cut the ribbon and officially open the Cambridge Weight Plan Centre in Cannon Park Coventry on Saturday 30th January. Providing bespoke one to one support, the Cambridge Weight Plan has already helped many Coventry residents to lose weight and make positive changes to their diet and overall lifestyle. Focusing on nutritional advice, the Cambridge Weight Plan, aims to not only help people lose weight in the short term but also help them to maintain that weight loss in the long term.
This is a particularly pressing concern in Coventry, as over 56% of the local adult population are overweight or obese. Furthermore the effects of poor diet and the health problems caused by it, add to the strain put on our local services. Across the UK problems caused by, and related to, Obesity have been estimated to cost the NHS over £4 billion pounds annually. In Coventry reducing unhealthy behaviours is a top health priority.
Jim hopes that the new Cambridge Weight Plan Centre can play a vital role not only in helping individual Coventry residents to lose weight but also to assist the work done by the NHS.
Cambridge Weight Plan Consultant Natalie Haley said, “I am delighted to have helped many people in Coventry change their lives in this positive way, and I look forward to helping many more.”
Jim Cunningham MP said “I have been very impressed with the work done by Cambridge Weight Plan consultants like Natalie here in Coventry. Their work has helped individuals lose weight and, crucially, keep that weight off. As with other parts of the country, obesity is a significant problem here in Coventry. Hopefully this new center will not only give local people a healthier future but will help to secure the health of our local NHS”.
