Health & Wellbeing Coach (HWC)

Gary Heath

PCN Health and Wellbeing Coach

Naomi Gollins

PCN Health and Wellbeing Coach

HWC support patients to take pro-active steps to improve the way they manage their physical & mental health conditions, based on what matters to them.

HWC do this by motivating patients to achieve their personalised health objectives. We have a number of ways in which we work. Patients can have 1:1 sessions in their home with a personalised plan, including exercise to suit their needs. We also offer our gym where patients can come in groups of ten to take part in a twelve week plan.

Our Gym is called “Gym & Tonic & at present we offer two types of class. Firstly we have a class based around circuit exercises, this allows all types of patients to join in as adaptions can be made to each exercise to suit the individual. Our oldest patient is 83 & we have people with COPD, diabetes, asthma & obesity who attend. Our second class is beginners Pilates, again this suits all ages & abilities.

Our home based classes are often for the elderly who may need more chair based exercise or for those that may not have the time to attend a class. We have found with many of our elderly patients the COVID crisis has left then very week from lack of movement, being confined to their house, muscle tone & strength has greatly reduced a great deal.

We also work with other agencies where we feel patients may benefit from a more specific skilled approach, such as diabetes classes. We can also refer to larger gym facilities for those that can afford this. We have access to many free class sessions for all ages which we are able to refer to.

Generally we have up to 50 patient’s active at any time, we also have input to the frailty team & patients who Social Prescribers may be working with. Anxiety & loneliness have been major factors from COVID & we are helping patients to become part of the community again, while improving their physical & mental wellbeing.

Social Prescriber

A social prescriber is a link worker who empowers people to take control of their health and wellbeing. They do this through giving their time to help focus on what matters to me and taking a holistic approach to achieve an acceptable outcome using SMART goals. They work to connect people to community groups and services for practical and emotional support.
