Now even easier to get fit and healthy – by text

EAST Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust’s Health Trainers are making it easier for people to get fit and healthy in the New Year by launching a new text service.

Anybody wanting help and support sticking to their New Year’s resolutions can simply text the word ‘goal’ to 82727.

A health trainer will call you back and arrange an appointment with you.

Health trainers are based in local communities and help people develop healthier behaviour and lifestyles.

They offer practical one-to-one support to help clients achieve goals relating to stopping smoking, getting more active, eating more healthily, drinking sensibly and sexual health.

The health trainer service has been running successfully in the Hastings and Rother area since 2009 and launched in East Sussex Downs and Weald in April 2011.

East Sussex Health Trainers are based in Hastings, St Leonards, Bexhill, Rye, Eastbourne, Hailsham, Uckfield, Seaford, Newhaven and Peacehaven.
