In line with the latest government announcement and public health guidance, Livewell is suspending all group meetings, appointments and Livewell classes with effect from Monday 23rd March for the foreseeable future.  This includes all activations, reviews, LWFG courses, Livewell classes, one-to-one appointments, gym inductions and face-to-face stop smoking appointments.

Our advisor team will offer weight management telephone and email support, checking in with clients on a weekly basis.  All active lose weight clients will have the suspended time added to the end of their programmes once our normal service resumes or their isolation period ends (if this is longer).

The service will not be accepting new applications for weight management programmes during this period.  

Council Leisure Centres are closed from Thursday 19 March .  For latest information about Springwod Leisure Centre, Derby Arena and Queen's Leisure Centre, please visit the InDerby news page.

Stopping Smoking

Because smoking harms the immune system, smokers are less protected against infections like coronavirus.  The good news is that it's never too late to quit. People registered to a Derby doctors can still apply and book a telephone appointment to stop smoking online.

We are offering telephone support to both existing and future stop smoking clients with delivery options for Nicotine Replacement Therapy, which will start w/c 30 March. As per our usual service, Champix prescription requests will need to be collected from clients’ local pharmacies. Advisors will communicate treatment pick up/collection arrangements with their clients.

We will use our Facebook and Twitter pages and website to communicate helpful tips, exercise ideas to try at home, wellbeing advice and changes to the service as new information becomes available. 

For further online guidance about Coronavirus (COVID-19) please refer to Public Health information and advice.

We are available to answer any questions by phone (01332 641254) or email: livewell@derby.gov.uk but please note we may take longer than usual to get back to you due to staff shortages.
