14 Feb The Colin Experience
Colin is our converted health and wellbeing caravan. He is always getting compliments on how comfortable and homely he is by the clients that jump onboard.
The best thing about Colin is his unique ability to set up a clinic in any location with all the equipment we need onboard. We have two highly trained health coaches who manage Colin so you’re always in safe hands.
Onboard Colin we provide services which include NHS health checks- this service provides clients with a snap shot of their health with a holistic assessment regarding lifestyle, blood pressure check, cholesterol, a cardiovascular risk and heart age and sometimes a hba1c check to test for diabetes. You always get a health assessment too which looks at your weight and body mass index.
Following the assessment each client will be given a personalised booklet of their results straight away and given a full explanation of what these results mean. From the results we can then highlight areas for lifestyle improvement that may reduce the risk of any developing diseases later in life. In some cases, we even discover medical conditions they may not been diagnosed. If this happens we will ensure you are given the best advice about what you should do next and will let your GP know your results.
We also act as a sign posting service to external services for people who need help with alcohol and drug issues. If you have concerns about your mental health, we can refer you to services that can help you. We also have links with the Diabetes Prevention Programme.
One You East Sussex has internal adult weight management courses and a service called man v fat.
Stop smoking services and 1:1 Health coach sessions can also be performed on the bus.

The best thing about Colin is you can jump on board. It is warm, cosy and dog friendly !!
