NHS Great Yarmouth & Waveney Primary Care Trust have joined with Community Connections (Gt Yarmouth) to offer a new service to the practice and the community.
WHO ARE THE HEALTH TRAINERS?
Currently there are eight Health Trainers working in the area. They are not medical professionals, but come from a variety of backgrounds such as fitness trainers, counsellors and nutritionists and they have undergone extensive training with the scheme.
WHO WOULD BENEFIT FROM SEEING A HEALTH TRAINER?
Anyone who would like to learn how to achieve a healthier life through, for example, eating well, exercising more, coping with stress or stopping smoking.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF I DECIDE TO SEE A HEALTH TRAINER?
You will be given a first half hour appointment with the Trainer to assess your lifestyle and discuss any changes. You will be given a diary to record your progress. The Health Trainer will then see you for 15 minutes in six sessions over six to twelve weeks. The Trainer will support and motivate you during this time and give you a certificate at the end of the programme.
HOW DO I CONTACT A HEALTH TRAINER?
You can book an appointment through the surgery reception. Ask for a first appointment with the Health Trainer.
WHAT HAPPENS IF THE HEALTH TRAINER CANNOT HELP ME?
The Health Trainer is able to contact other outside agencies for specialist referrals.
