Transforming the management of obesity prevention

Summary of the impact

The Health Advancement Research Team (HART) members critically evaluated the North-East Lincolnshire Obesity Prevention Strategy, the first such evaluation in the UK. The research led directly to measureable improvements: specific new training programmes and resource allocations; partnership development and co-ordination; health-worker behaviour change; increases in employment amongst obesity prevention healthcare staff; a new communications strategy; and an increase in healthy eating opportunities. The Care Trust considers that the research has had a beneficial impact on obesity levels in North-East Lincolnshire. The research team/Care Trust partnership has strengthened and is continuing, and the results are replicable nationally and internationally.
