Please note: the Gateway Health Trainers service was decommissioned at the end of September 2017 and is no longer accepting referrals.

Do you want to…

  • Eat more healthily?
  • Manage your weight?
  • Be more active?
  • Stop or reduce smoking?
  • Reduce your alcohol intake?

If you’re aged over 16 and you live in the South Birmingham area, Gateway Health Trainers offer up to six FREE one-to-one advice and support sessions with your own Health Trainer. You’ll get a personalised health plan, with appointments made at a time and place to suit you, as well as lots of information about other local services that can help you achieve your personal goals.

Your Gateway Health Trainer will help identify the lifestyle changes you need to make, and then give you the support, encouragement, motivation and practical help that you need to keep up the good work into the future.

Gateway Health Trainers also run a number of activities, like our an annual Fun Run in Cannon Hill Park, a walking group in Shenley, a group for clients with long term health conditions in Druids Heath (in partnership with South CCG), and a bike hire scheme.

If you’d like to use the Health Trainers service, ask your GP to refer you, or call 0121 456 7820 to find out if you are eligible.
