Health & Wellbeing Coaching

What is Health & Wellbeing Coaching?

Health & Wellbeing Coaching is a supported self-management intervention, implemented in personalised care to support patients with long term conditions to make sustainable healthy lifestyle changes. Health Coaches support patients to develop the knowledge, skills and confidence to empower them to become “active participants” in their care and reach self-identified goals.

Non-urgent advice:

Following referral, patients will receive an initial contact via telephone with their allocated coach. Following this, initial consultation and follow up appointments will be conducted face to face. Sessions will last 30-45 minutes.
