Taming Obesity – Mancunian Way

Source: Asianlite

Taming Obesity – Mancunian WayThe initiative titled OASIS (Obesity Awareness, Support and Information Services) was launched in November 2015 at Salford. It is spearheading a national campaign to stem the growing concern on obesity. They organised a study day at Salford Royal Hospital to raise awareness and review practice in the management of obesity and its related health conditions.

This event featured the establishment of a voluntary body known as the Obesity Awareness, Support and Information Services of Great Britain

(www.OASIS-GB.com). The group brought together a unique mix of members involved not only in the treatment of obesity (surgeons, GPs, clinicians and dieticians) but also in its prevention (health improvement workers, educational providers, youth services, voluntary and community workers). Its aim is to implement joined up approaches to both stopping the problem getting worse and preventing it happening in the first place.

One year on the group continues to attract members from a broad spectrum: Consultant Surgeons, General Practitioners, Public Health England, Health Improvement, Education, Community Leisure, Youth Zone, Community and Voluntary Services.

Dr Siba Senapati, the Chair of the group, commented : “I am delighted at the response and support of colleagues who have come together from such a broad range of services to tackle the current very serious issue of obesity. One year on from the formation of our group I feel that prevention and intervention services are much better connected and the opportunity for individuals to engage in physical exercise and lifestyle change is easier than it’s ever been. Therefore whilst we shall continue to do our bit, the challenge to individuals is that it’s now very much ‘Over To You’ to take up the opportunities and support readily available in your community.”

Taming Obesity – Mancunian WayHowever the current efforts from all sectors needs to be further joined to make any significant dent into the current obesity epidemic. We need full public support to succeed in this venture, hence Please join your hands with us to make this happen.

During this past year, the group has established a well connected, multi-service approach in tackling obesity by working towards changing attitudes and behaviours across all age groups in adopting active and healthy lifestyles. For example, there are many highly visible public campaigns – such as Beat the Street, Sugar Smart in Schools and Empower Health – all of which have really helped to raise awareness around obesity and make it easier for people to take up physical exercise and healthy living.

Local leisure offers are now better promoted through GP practices as an alternative to reliance on medical services. Hotels, restaurants and fast food outlets are becoming much more supportive in making their customers aware of the fat, sugar and salt content in their products and many of these companies are moving towards healthier alternatives. Schools and Colleges are very keen to promote the virtues of healthy eating, good hydration and regular exercise to their students.

With all of these things in place, along with the support of the OASIS-GB group in providing a much better connection between prevention and medical intervention, the momentum one year on is now beginning to shift towards individuals in taking up these opportunities.

New Forum to Tackle Obesity

The obesity time bomb is ticking in Greater Manchester. A new support group will bring together patients and clinicians to help tackle obesity and improve the health of patients living across the region….reports Asian Lite News

The Greater Manchester Obesity Awareness Support Group has been initiated by Mr Siba Senapati, Consultant Bariatric Surgeon at Salford Royal, Mr Akheel Syed, Consultant Bariatric Physician at Salford Royal, and Mr Jack Carney, former principal of The Manchester College and voluntary athletic coach. They aim to share best practice across the region, provide an information point for colleagues from different sectors and to encourage co-ordinated treatment pathways for patients.

Mr Senapati said: “Figures show that the health of people in Greater Manchester is worse than the England average, with more than 90,000 adults and 14,000 children being overweight or obese. There is also evidence that those living in deprived areas and in certain groups suffer disproportionate health inequalities.

“By creating this group we aim to provide a consistent approach across the region to ensure patients and clinicians have the support and clinical expertise needed to tackle what has fast become an epidemic across the country. It is vitally important that a network is created across our region so we can deal with this problem head-on and share our expertise, knowledge and information to ultimately improve population health and patient care.”

The group will provide effective signposting to obesity information and support. Patient support groups will be developed with the help of local champions who can share their own life story and experiences.

The inaugural meeting of the support group will take place at a Salford Royal study day on Saturday 14 November at 4pm in the Frank Rifkin Lecture Theatre, Mayo Building. Leaders of voluntary organisations across Greater Manchester are invited to go along and support this venture.

For more details on the Greater Manchester Obesity Awareness Support Group, please contact Siba Senapati at sibasenapati@gmail.com or Jack Carney at jcarney171@gmail.com.

The study day is aimed at medical and allied health professionals who have a significant role to play in early obesity intervention and prevention and will include lectures on the various impacts of obesity on health. To register your attendance at the study day, visit www.doctorsacademy.org.
