Coach in Practice
Working with Patients in local
GP practices to get people moving
What is Coach In Practice?
Coach In Practice is a pilot project we are running in partnership with Adelaide Street Family Practice's Patient Peer Support project in Blackpool.
The key part of the project is that we place our Coaches in local GP practices to work with patients and help you understand how taking part in our community based exercise classes can help you better manage your own health conditions.
Can I see a Coach at my GP?
We are currently working exclusively with Adelaide Street Family Practice at present, and are in talks with one other GP Practice. When our Guru starts working in other GP Practices we will provide more details here
What happens at my appointment
Appointments are made for small groups of people, so it's also an opportunity to meet others on a similar journey.
The Coach will take you through 2 basic fitness tests to better understand where you are right now and discuss options which will help you make positive steps to improve your health in a way that is suitable to you, because we want to help you live better for longer.
I run a GP Practice
We are currently working with Adelaide Street Family Practice to explore how this approach will benefit both Patients and Clinicians. In July 2019 we will be able to let you know more about our successes, and have a solid model of how we can work together to benefit your patients and clinicians. If you would like to express your interest please use our contact form below. Even if you are not a GP Practice but are a Blackpool Health service, please still get in touch and we can get a conversation started.
