FOLK who want to quit smoking, lose weight or get fit in 2012 can call on the help of Derbyshire’s health promotion experts.

The team from Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Trust’s health promotion department are on hand to enable people to keep their healthy resolutions.

Said Sam Chambers, from the service: “It can be hard to make these kind of lifestyle changes on your own.

“We are here to offer help, encouragement and information on everything from healthy eating to stopping smoking and starting exercise.

“We understand that making changes to improve our health can be difficult to start and even more difficult to maintain.

“But people don’t need to do it alone, we are here to help.”
