Doctors are encouraging those who want to get fit, lose weight or stop smoking in 2014 to make a new year’s resolution to visit Exmouth’s NHS healthy lifestyle clinic.

The weekly clinic, held at the Open Door Centre in Church Street, also offers free, friendly, confidential advice on issues such as alcohol, healthy eating and improving emotional wellbeing.

Health trainer Katie Denning, who runs the clinic, said: “January is traditionally our busiest month, with many people looking to shed Christmas pounds or make a new start for the new year.

“If you are considering making a positive change in your life in 2014, we would encourage you to book now to ensure you secure an appointment with an NHS health trainer.

“We are here to support you towards a healthier lifestyle, based around your preferences.”

Lynne Palmer, head of Health Promotion Devon, said: “We aim to work with people who need a little extra support to make healthy lifestyle changes.

“Our health trainers live in the local community and understand the challenges people may face.

“People come to us for help because they want to be more active, eat a healthier diet or perhaps stop smoking.

“In our clinics we have helped people to develop a personal health plan and offer a six to eight-week period of support to help them achieve their goals.”

Clinics take place on Monday, between 9.30am-3pm.

For more information, or to find out if you’re eligible for support, call Katie on 07794 082586.
