Due to the changing healthcare landscape in response to the novel Coronavirus and Covid-19, as well as the fact the people are busy and are sometimes not able to make it to an appointment during working hours, Wendy has introduced a variety of online/virtual services to make it easier to meet your health requirements and goals.
Virtual consultations follow the same procedures as in-person consultations. They can be booked online and a meeting link will be emailed to you. Virtual consultations will take place on Teleport at the specified time.

Virtual Follow-up Consultations
It often helps to have someone looking over your shoulder when you start a new diet plan, giving you support and encouraging you when it gets tough. Wendy wants you to succeed in making the changes you need to make and sustaining those changes in the long term.
You are welcome back as often or as little as you like.
A weekly appointment may be beneficial if you struggle to make changes.
A monthly appointment will suit you if you just want to check that you are following the plan correctly and monitor your weight.
At these appointments Wendy will:
• Take a 24-hour recall
• Measure your weight and waist circumference (You will need to supply these)

• Discuss any changes that need to be made to your diet plan
• Discuss any problems you are experiencing with the diet plan
