Councillor Patricia Stallard, Hampshire County Council’s Executive Member for Health and Public Health, said: “Almost 7 in 10 of Hampshire’s adults are overweight or obese and the cost to the NHS in Hampshire of managing diseases related to excess weight and obesity estimated at almost £340 million per year. Therefore, I am delighted this new service provided by WW is being launched in line with our Healthy Weights Strategy, and supports residents across the county, especially those most at risk of ill health, and provide them with the advice they need.”
