  • Cost per life year (saved) of CVD related illnesses Traditional cessation therapies Ambulance call-outs
  • Barrier Project Aim Public perception of availability and accessibility of healthier lifestyle choices a) Find more accessible, everyday approaches. Existing technologies , transport and media may not be conducive to healthier lifestyle issues b) Use technology in reverse Too little focus on prevention based approaches that facilitate better health and social well being. Poor levels of understanding about healthier living among local population c) Focus on preventative approaches. Promote current guidance.

  • Key Findings: Baseline
    • Language used by young people is basic/crude - it also performs a social protection role
    • Messages should relay the benefits of refraining from risk behaviours and enforce the facts
    • Focus on ‘speaking to loved ones/friends’ about sexual health and avoid peer pressures
    • Celebrity reference is good
    • Content needs personal value if it is not ‘social’
    • Allow people to re-share or re-distribute content (e.g. Badges)
    • NHS is credible, reliable and trusted brand for young people to source advice
