This consultation ran from 01/06/2018 to 29/06/2018.
Thank you very much for responding to the consultation on the Newcastle Public Health Obesity Review.
Please find enclosed a report on the consultation which aims to capture the main themes and issues brought up through this process. We apologise for the delay in issuing this report but further discussions around obesity prevention are still ongoing within the Council.
The consultation was held to help inform the reconfiguration of the programmes commissioned by Newcastle City Council’s Public Health team to help prevent overweight and obesity in Newcastle. The council is currently in the process of further reviewing the responses to the consultation and wider stakeholder views and will then be able to decide the future shape of obesity prevention work in the city.
In the interim, we are initially looking at extending the current contracts for obesity prevention and this will be reported to the relevant organisations once this has been approved.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any queries.
