Live Well Gateshead

Gateshead has some of the highest levels of unhealthy people in the UK. Everyday habits and behaviours - such as eating too much unhealthy food, drinking more alcohol than is recommended, continuing to smoke and not being active enough – are responsible for around 40% of all deaths in England.

It’s never too late to take control of your health.
