MYTIME ACTIVE LEADS WAY IN CHILD WEIGHT MANAGEMENT SERVICES

Social enterprise Mytime Active has won two new community health contracts from NHS health commissioners in Wandsworth and a brand new one in Lewisham, securing its position as first choice for child weight management services.

Said Annie Holden Health Division Manager: -We have many years combined expertise in this service area, with successful long-term programmes in London including Bromley, Croydon, Hammersmith and Fulham, Wandsworth, as well as Sandwell in the Midlands.

Winning these contracts is a great opportunity for us to build on the good work we have been doing at Boost Wandsworth in our previous commission for child weight management and health services for Early Years and new mums, teenagers and adults.

We’ll also be building on our previous experience of workforce training and coordinating with frontline staff and volunteers from other agencies to ensure consistent good health messages are joined up across public services.

In Lewisham, also under the Boost label, Mytime Health will be working on more specialist targeted Tier 3 services for overweight/obese children with complex needs.

Mytime Health Dietitian Melissa Paterson, who recently appeared on BBC Breakfast, gave her opinion on working as part of the team tackling both these contracts: -This will encourage families to adopt a healthy and active lifestyle as part of our integrated approach to community health programmes. We’re really looking forward to working alongside other partners to help tackle health inequalities where it’s most needed.

As a social enterprise, Mytime Active is a non-profit distributing organisation, with all surplus reinvested, to improve the quality of services it provides. They bring their knowledge and expertise of the health sector by delivering coherent and integrated healthy lifestyle programmes to target those most at risk on behalf of the NHS and local authorities. In the current year Mytime Active’s weight management services will have reached over 7,500 children and their families.

Said Steve Price, Chief Executive of Mytime Active: -Our goal is to improve the quality of people’s lives and their well-being by delivering health services that are widely regarded to be top quality, reliable, accessible and customer focused. We are really pleased to be recognised by NHS trusts and local authorities across the UK in partnering with them and other groups in delivering community health care.
