NHS Health Trainers have been specifically trained to motivate, support and advise people on how to get healthy, stay healthy and get the most out of life. They encourage people to change lifestyle behaviours which are known to cause ill health.
Our Health Trainers are based within GP Surgeries across the Borough. They specifically work with patients who are 45 years and over, who do not have any existing cardiovascular conditions such diabetes and heart disease.
Although you may be well at the moment, there are likely to be aspects of your lifestyle that could prevent you from staying well. If you smoke, do little or no physical activity, drink more than the recommended limits of alcohol or eat unhealthily then you could be putting yourself at risk of becoming ill in the future.
Small changes can make a big difference to people’s health and that is what Health Trainers are about. They will offer motivation and encouragement, and will help people to find and access the support and services they need.
Bolton’s Health Trainers are passionate about making a difference to people’s health and wellbeing.
