PCT director of public health Dr Alistair Lipp said: “These new web pages will make accessing information about the raft of healthy living initiatives we offer extremely easy and convenient.
“We hope that as many people as possible will visit the website to see how they could benefit from the wide range of services available.
“Many of the conditions which can cause so much misery are preventable and could be avoided by leading a healthy lifestyle.
“These web pages should give people the inspiration to take simple steps to help them do just that.”
