Recently I have started working collaboratively with a Karen Grant who runs a local weight management scheme. Below is some detail she has written about the nature of her business which is extremely popular and well received locally.
We work collaboratively because I let her meet her clients in the community pharmacy. This is mutually beneficial and patient centred. The patient can meet Karen in an accessible location and the arrangement drives new footfall into the pharmacy.
I think the community pharmacy should be the local hub for all things health related. The best way to achieve this initially at least is to invite specialist services in to work in collaboration for the good of the patient.
Have a look at Karen’s website etc. She is happy to answer questions.
Diet Direction is a weight loss management consultancy business owned and run by myself (Karen Grant: Anutr) which offers the possibility of three 10 week innovative programmes with guidance and support throughout. The 10 week programmes cover all of the basics in which Diet Direction believes are crucial to losing weight and getting healthy in a step by step method with a weekly challenge to focus on. Frequent professional contact has shown to produce a much higher weight loss success rate than going it alone and knowing that a trained personal weight loss management consultant is there to help and guide you can go a long way.
Recently I have been working with Johnathan Laird MPharmS in Turriff, Aberdeenshire using their consultancy room for meeting with clients. As A community pharmacist there, Johnathan Laird, has been a great support through offering this service. He has helped create the fantastic central and comfortable setting in which my clients come every week. While there, I carry out my weekly weigh in and body analysis of body fat %, muscle %, water %, BMI and BMR. I take weekly body measurements of the individuals, give guidelines to a healthy personal weight, monitor and discuss their food diaries and give general weight loss tips alongside quality nutritional advice.
Diet Direction’s aim is to improve the two key things in everybody’s lives….health & happiness and Johnathan is helping to make this happen.
