Headlines

  • The Bolton Integrated Wellness Service will combine existing separate services aimed at helping adults live a healthier lifestyle into one joined up offer.
  • Bolton Health and Wellbeing Survey 2010 provided information on the following less healthy behaviours that the service will aim to tackle: respondents’ levels of physical activity, alcohol consumption, weight status, food habits, smoking status and wellbeing. It was very common for people to engage in these less healthy behaviours, 84% did 1 or more, and 52% did 2 or more.
  • A factor analysis was performed to see if some behaviours more commonly occurred together. 3 fairly discrete factors emerged.
  • ‘Unhealthy adversity’ was a combination of low wellbeing, smoking, and less healthy food habits. These people tended to be younger, more deprived, and in poor health, with a minority experiencing very poor health. There are an estimated 24,000 of these people in Bolton.
  • ‘Inactive overweight’ was a combination of low levels of physical activity and a BMI over healthy weight. These people tended to be middle aged and older, living across affluent and deprived neighbourhoods, and experiencing poor health. There are an estimated 51,000 of these people in Bolton.
  • ‘Imbibers’ were those who drank alcohol at increasing risk levels. They were likely to be in middle age, living in affluent parts of Bolton and in generally good health. There are an estimated 39,000 of these people in Bolton.
  • These profiles can be used to plan services that meet these different groups of residents’ needs.
