Health and Wellbeing Advisors

We understand that not everything can be fixed by medicine and many other factors influence a person’s sense of wellbeing, so it’s key that patients find the appropriate support to help them regain control and take responsibility for their own health and wellbeing. Our Advisors work with our patients who need some coaching and support in a whole range of areas such as diet and exercise, emotional health, loneliness, financial issues and social anxiety. They are trained to help patients find the best solutions to make positive changes in their lives using manageable and realistic steps and goal setting.
