Public Health England has launched a major new adult health campaign to seize the opportunity for a national reset moment.
COVID-19 has affected the whole country; for almost everyone, life has had to fundamentally change. But it has also prompted many people to reflect and think more seriously about their health.
Nearly two thirds (63%) of adults in the UK are overweight or living with obesity. Gaining weight is often a gradual process that takes place over a number of years and modern life doesn’t always make it easy. This extra weight causes pressure to build up around vital organs, making it harder for the body to fight against diseases like cancer, heart disease and now COVID-19. By reducing your weight within a healthy range, you can help cut your risk of being critically ill with COVID-19.
Stopping smoking is one of the best things you'll ever do for your health.
When you stop, you give your lungs the chance to repair and you'll be able to breathe easier. There are lots of other benefits too - and they start almost immediately.
It's never too late to quit. Let's do this!
The F.A.S.T. (Face, Arms, Speech, Time) acronym is effective in driving calls to 999 for stroke, saving lives and reducing disability. It also provides a simple test to help people identify the most common signs of a stroke:
- Face – has their face fallen on one side? Can they smile?
- Arms – can they raise both arms and keep them there?
- Speech – is their speech slurred?
- Time to call 999 if you see any one of these signs of a stroke
When Stroke Strikes Act F.A.S.T. Call 999

Who are Green Doctor?
Green Doctor is a service run by Groundwork, a group of charities working across the UK to respond to the needs of local communities and tackle fuel poverty.
We are trained energy-efficiency experts who provide vulnerable residents with advice and support in their own home, over the telephone, or by way of workshop events. We help them make savings on their energy, water, and money to live more comfortably and reduce their environmental impact. What’s more, we’re experts at working with vulnerable people in their own homes and in the community. And because we believe in empowering residents, our service is geared towards supporting and enabling them to take control of their utility bills.
