Health and Wellbeing Service
South Worcestershire GPs are offering a new service for their patients through the Improved Access appointments.
This service supports patients with learning more about healthy eating, weight management and improving your diet as well as supporting patients with stress management.
The sessions run on a Tuesday evening 6.30pm – 7.30pm at Farrier House Surgery, Worcester.
Weight Management Clinics
These sessions are for all ages focusing on healthy eating, reading food labels and having a balanced diet. There is the option of a weekly weigh in, but please be assured you can opt out of this!
You will be given advice and information on healthy eating and how to lose weight. This may include a referral to the local gym, local walking groups, exercise classes, or what they can do for free in their home. It will also include information on how to eat healthily including the balanced plate.
One patient said the service and lifestyle Officer is "very friendly and encouraging."
Stress Management Clinics
This service is here to support patients who may be feeling overwhelmed with everyday life’s stresses and strains.
The sessions focus on techniques and strategies for identifying stress, and then how to manage that stress.
One patient commented: “I’m so glad this service is available on the NHS. I have a lot of stress, worry and anxiety in my life and don’t know how to resolve it or cope with it apart from medication. I love using this holistic approach.”
If you would like to attend one of these sessions please contact your GP surgery who can refer you.
