Healthy Lifestyles Service at the Holts Health Centre

As part of our commitment to supporting all of our patients looking to make lifestyle changes, we are offering a drop-in service in partnership with Healthy Lifestyles Gloucestershire. We will have a health advisor with us from 10:30am to 3.30pm on the first Tuesday of every month, commencing Tuesday 7th May 2019.
