Southwark healthy weight training
Southwark Health and Wellbeing Board are prioritising tackling obesity across the borough and have established a new five-year healthy weight strategy.
It helps those who work within the London Borough of Southwark to be successful at changing the lives of people affected by excess weight.
In the UK, more than 6 in 10 adults' BMI is in the overweight or obese category: London and England averages are 38.1% and 34.2% respectively.
Southwark has some of the highest rates of obesity in the country: 58.8% of all adults and 43% of children in year 6 are classified as being overweight or obese.
However fewer than 0.1% of the frontline health professionals in the UK have had any specialist training in obesity.
Southwark Healthy Weight Training is completely free, fully online and has CPD points attached on completion.
To be able to apply and take part in this training, you must work or practise within the London Borough of Southwark.
