Info for GPs and healthcare providers

Noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) such as cancer, vascular diseases, chronic respiratory diseases and diabetes are the greatest challenge for health services. Risk factors include stress, unhealthy diet, physical inactivity and social isolation.

At Marjon Health & Wellbeing we help patients lead healthy lifestyles. Our programmes encourage physical activity, fitness, healthy eating and relaxation techniques.

Our biopsychosocial approach, developed over 10 years, focuses on the person not the disease. We’ve shown that this paradigm shift away from medication and surgery to helping patients to self-manage in their community reduces the demand on core NHS services.

We believe that illness doesn’t have to define people. We work to change attitudes and empower patients to become more responsible for their own health and wellbeing. Ours is a more sustainable approach to health care, one that raises the importance of preventive and prehabilitative medicine.

All our work is patient-centred, delivered in a social non-medical environment and underpinned by a strong evidence base of natural and social scientific disciplines. Patients are encouraged to discuss their concerns, health behaviours and learn from each other, and to go on and share their experiences with family and friends.
