The My health for life program works in partnership with GPs, providing patients an opportunity to participate in an evidence-based lifestyle modification program in their local community. Facilitators are trained health professionals, including dietitians and exercise physiologists, who have a keen interest in preventive health.

My health for life is a practical extension of the advice given by GPs to their patients, allowing participants to better understand their lifestyle risks and action their health goals. GPs will be kept informed of their patient’s progress, completing the care cycle. Health professionals are a critical part of the My health for life program, and we look forward to building strong, professional relationships while contributing to your patients’ overall care.

Here is a flowchart of the eligibility criteria:
