Joan, our Health trainer, runs the following clinics:
Brownlow General Practice Mondays 9-4
Ropewalks General Practice Fridays 9-12 and 1-4
Ask at reception for an appointment if you would like to see her.
We also have a health trainer based at the Student Health Centre, if that is more convenient for you.
The service is provided by PSS in Liverpool. Here is some more information from their website:
“Our Health Trainers are members of your local community, they understand the real issues and challenges faced by people who are trying to make positive changes to their lifestyle. They have received specialist training
which has given them the tools necessary to empower others to achieve their goals.
Our Health Trainers have an excellent knowledge of local services that can support people along their
way, some of which we provide as part of the PSS family and some of which are offered by our partners.
What do we do?
Our team work across all Liverpool neighbourhoods to support and motivate people to make healthier lifestyle choices and improve their health and wellbeing.
We support people to become healthier and happier, we don’t tell you what to do , we provide an assessment to help identify areas of your life where you could benefit from making some changes. We help people who are looking to:
• Eat more healthily
• Become more active or mobile
• Reduce stress and/or anxiety
• Reduce the amount they smoke
• Keep their drinking in check
We can work with you for up to 12 weeks on a one-to-one basis. Together we will create a personal health plan to assist you in achieving your goals.
