The diabetes health and wellness coaching offers individual patient-centred support, delivered locally in Southall. Health coaching focuses on increasing patients’ skills and confidence to manage their own condition and set achievable goals - engaging patients to make informed decisions.
Supported self-management is key to the successful day-to-day management of diabetes, putting the person with diabetes at the centre of their care, working in partnership with their health care professional team.
