Corporate Feedback

“As an RGN Nurse working within a corporate occupational health department, I see a need for a proactive approach to helping people address the issue of being overweight and unfit. The average weight loss over a six-week period for a small group of staff was 8.2lbs with one staff member losing 1 stone (14lbs). All of the start and end weight measurements were recorded by a member of the Occupational Health Team. I am pleased to say that the Coach Me Slim & Trim Programme® will continue.” – Mrs. B Hamilton RGN Nurse, Occupational Health Advisor (Dip) Grosvenor Health
