Health and Wellbeing Academy – Our new ‘Get Set Goal’ Service
Get Set Goal
A free service delivered by healthcare students from the University of Huddersfield. Students are supervised by registered healthcare professionals.
We are offering a series of online appointments, of up to 45 minutes each, typically over a 4-6 week period, focussing on improving your general health and wellbeing.
Who is this service for?
This service is for anyone over the age of 18 who would like support in making positive changes to their lifestyle.
Where will my appointment be?
We are currently offering virtual/online and telephone appointments only. There are plans to offer face-to-face session soon.
What will happen at my first appointment?
During each appointment, you will meet with one or two healthcare students to talk about your health and wellbeing.
The students will help you to consider what goals you would like to set to improve your health and wellbeing.
If you are not sure what you would like to achieve, they can help you to make some choices about what is important to you and help you to develop the confidence to achieve your goals. Usually, people identify one or two goals. Your goals can be in any area. For example, sleep, managing stress, exercise, and staying healthy.
Your goals are your decision, and we will work with you to plan and achieve them.
What will happen at following appointments?
During further appointments, we will review how things are progressing with you towards achieving your goals. At each session, there will also be a wellbeing check-in to see how you are feeling generally.
After your final appointment, we will talk to you about the next steps. This may include how you carry on working towards your goals and where you could link in with groups and activities in your local area. We will also provide you with a summary of your plan.
