The Lifestyle Chronicles - Health Trainers (Coaches) in England

The NHS Health Trainers Program will deploy health trainers to work with local communities to help residents develop healthier lifestyles. This will include development of personal health plans, cessation of smoking, increasing physical activity, improving diet and assisting with access to needed services for achievement of health goals.

The program will start in the most health deprived areas in England with the highest levels of health inequities. The plan includes expansion to the entire country in 2007.

This is an ambitious program that bears watching. Undoubtedly, there will be lessons to learn from the experience.
