North Yorkshire Support

Our North Yorkshire service is available to individuals above the age of 18, who either live, work or have a GP in the Scarborough or Ryedale District. This area covers the North Yorkshire moors in addition to the coastal area running from Filey to Whitby.

The adult weight management service is run throughout these two districts aiming to improve the overall lifestyle of our service users in addition to helping them achieve sustainable weight loss.

The service is broken down into 2 main elements-

  • Face to face sessions as week 0, week 12 and week 24, these sessions enable goals and targets to be set, in addition to detailed discussion regarding past and current barriers to the client not achieving their lifestyle goals.
  • Group sessions- each client attends weekly group sessions at their chosen venue. The hourly sessions are broken down into first half discussion focused on weight loss and lifestyle improvement subjects, such as food planning, motivation, sleep and exercise tips . then a second half element of physical activity, this is provided by the advisors on site and by local community based providers, such as Pilates, Zumba, chair based exercise classes.

Our current classes take place in Scarborough, Filey, Pickering, Whitby and Malton, where you can join at any time as well as virtual classes for those who might struggle to attend a group.

How do I join the groups?

You can contact the team either by emailing us, calling us on 0800 9177752 or texting us HEALTHY to 60163.

We would then contact you directly to arrange your week 0 face to face appointment with one of our local weight management advisors to introduce you to the service and set your weight loss target for the first 12 weeks of the plan.

The assessments currently take place at Whitby Community Hospital, Malton Community Hospital and Springhill House in Scarborough and the team works 9-5 Monday to Friday so will be able to accommodate your assessments in these times.
