Client Testimonials

 
 

The GP was so helpful, he answered all my questions and I never felt rushed. Everything I needed was done then and there in one visit. Martin S.

 

re: Weight Management Services

Dear Jo and colleagues,
 
We both felt we would like to put in writing how much we feel the support you are all giving us has helped in our desire change our lifestyle and, therefore, consequently lose weight.  The one to one sessions at home have certainly motivated us greatly.  This change is lifestyle is benefiting us with other health issues i.e. diabetes, hypertension etc.
 
The other group sessions have not only been informative and enjoyable but we now also realise, from all the nice people we have met, that there are a multitude of problems that cause weight to be a problem.
 
Thanks again to you all, keep up the good work.

 

...I was given an appointment at a time that suited me.... Joyce D.
