Holderness Community NHS Healthtrainer Service
The NHS healthtrainer service has recently been commissioned by the Holderness Locality Development Fund to roll out a peripatetic healthtrainer service throughout the Holderness Area. The aim of the Holderness Community Health Trainer service is to improve the health and wellbeing of those individuals that live within the more rural and isolated areas of Holderness.
The east riding health trainer service is dedicated to help provide support, guidance and motivation to individuals who want to make positive long term lifestyle changes, supporting individuals who wish to stop smoking, lose weight, get more physically active, reduce alcohol consumption, reduce stress and anxiety and improve their general wellbeing.
Two ‘additional’ NHS healthtrainers have been recruited and will be based out of Withernsea Pavilion Centre ; however, they will be providing regular healthtrainer ‘clinics’ throughout the Holderness Area where individuals can benefit from 1-1 support, guidance and motivation to help individuals make lifestyle changes.
The service will link closely with general practices, local neighbourhood, community development initiatives and will build on existing community/voluntary infrastructures. The programme will link with other health promotion initiatives, services and organisations throughout the Holderness Area.
Anthony Bryce, healthtrainer co-ordinator states, “This is an exciting new project where the NHS Healthtrainer Service can provide those living in the more rural areas of Holderness the possibility of accessing a lifestyle support service which will be beneficial to individuals health and wellbeing”
The NHS healthtrainer service is available to adults aged 18 or above who live within the East Riding of Yorkshire.
The NHS healthtrainers will be holding weekly clinics in Hedon commencing from Friday 25 th April 2014
Church View Surgery, Hedon – 9am – 12.30pm
