Decade of Better Health

Over the next ten years, the Decade of Better Health programme aims to make Nottingham a healthier, happier city. Nottingham is not as healthy as it could be; more people are suffering from ill health, and are dying younger than they should be.

What we need to do to make Nottingham healthier;

Reduce Smoking
Nottingham needs to smoke 5 million fewer cigarettes a week.

Reduce alcohol consumption
Nottingham needs 1,000 fewer hospital visits due to alcohol

Achieve a healthy weight
Nottingham needs to lose 500,000 pounds (lbs) by 2020.

Becoming more active
28.000 people in Nottingham need to exercise more.

Achieve positive mental well being
People need to feel good, be positive and be happy.

To do this, the Decade of Better Health programme is asking YOU to make a pledge towards healthier lifestyle. If we all make small changes to improve our health, then together we can make Nottingham a healthier, happier city.
