Have your say on the health-related behaviour change service

Closes 10 Mar 2023

Opened 9 Jan 2023

Overview

One You East Sussex helps residents to eat well, manage their weight, move more, quit smoking and drink less. The contract for the service ends in March 2024. We are thinking about changing the future service model. This consultation explains our thinking and what the changes would mean for residents and professionals who refer people to the service. 

The service would continue to offer a holistic health assessment to all eligible residents, and everyone would have access to online support programmes to help them make changes to their health-related behaviours. More intensive forms of support would only be routinely offered to those with the highest needs who could gain the greatest health benefits. Intensive forms of support might include face-to-face support from a health coach, or a weight management group delivered online or in person.

This would help us tackle health inequalities by offering greater levels of support to those who need it the most; for example, those living in areas where deprivation levels are high and life expectancy is lower than average, or people living with a disability or mental health issue. Any savings from these changes would be used by the service to help it achieve the best possible health outcomes for residents and communities. 

What you tell us will be summarised in a consultation report and will inform the Equality Impact Assessment. A final decision on the proposed change to the service model will be made by the Lead Member for Adult Social Care & Health in June 2023.

You can fill in the survey online or on paper, but you can also send us a letter or email – whatever works for you.

The consultation closes on 10 March 2023.
