Doctor led Preventative Health Education Workshops for Business

About Our Business

The chartered institute of personnel development reported that sickness absence leads to an average loss of 6.9 working days per employee per year. Their study in 2019 found the average cost per employee per year to be 554 pounds. At the Doctor Explains we work with medium to large sized businesses that recognise the importance of educating their staff directly on health topics to empower them with the knowledge and tools to prevent illness both mental or physical before it has an impact on their health. 

Our Health Education and Lifestyle Workshops are tailor made and cover a range of common medical conditions including Burnout, Women's Health and Perimenopause, Men's Health, and Obesity Management. These workshops are delivered face to face by two experienced NHS Gps to engage directly with your staff and can run as a rolling programme of workshops and online educational material to keep your staff engaged and motivated for health improvement on a long term basis.

We are two female General Practitioners who collectively have more then 40 years experience. Frustrated at the lack of preventative health education and poor appointment access in the NHS we bring our evidence based knowledge to a wider audience than day to day General Practice. We firmly believe that providing individuals with an understanding of their body and the tools to tune in to their health empowers them to make positive lifestyle choices and can prevent ill health, reduce time off work and improve job satisfaction and productivity.

A unique opportunity to spend time face to face with working NHS Gps highly qualified in education and preventative health strategies we invite you to become the leaders in staff wellbeing and create a healthier workforce. If this has the added outcome of reducing the burden on an overstretched NHS we can all feel we are doing our part to improve the health of the nation.
