What is the Lifestyle Hub?

It is a central point of contact for healthy lifestyle, weight management and physical activity programmes. You can get further information on Stop Smoking, Reducing Alcohol and Carers Services. The Lifestyle Hub Advisors can also offer front line healthy eating advice and ways to get you moving a little more. You work with the Lifestyle Advisor to make changes you feel you are ready to make.

 

How do I get a Lifestyle Hub appointment?

Once referred by your GP or Practice Nurse, you will be given a patient leaflet with a little more information about the Lifestyle Hub and our contact details. We will call you to book you in for your first appointment, but please feel free to help us out and give us a call first.

 

What happens after my Lifestyle Hub appointment?

Your first appointment is agreeing on which programme you wish to be referred to, next you choose when to see your Lifestyle Advisor over a period of a few months for support and motivation – we call these “follow up" or "review” appointments. These appointments are informal 30 minute chats – you can choose to enrol in another programme or maybe think about another area of your lifestyle you would like to improve upon. It’s up to you how you use these appointments and we can be flexible with how often you want them – just ask!
