Annette Harding - Health and Wellbeing Coach

I have been in post since the end of October 2020 creating, developing and mapping out what, who and why this role will work with whom, how, where and when….a lot to get up and running ! I am a Mum to four, Nana to three (and one very needy rescue dog) so Multi-tasking is my speciality...

Primarily pharmaceutical trained, starting out as a Field Sales Representative in Primary care with my speciality being pain management.

Progressing into Endocrinology specialising in Diabetes - Trained at the Warwick University.

Many moons later moving onto being attached to Addenbrookes Team working in collaboration as a Hospital Specialist in Women’s Health, Obstetrics and Gynaecology.

After some more training held the post of Hospital Specialist attached to the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and the St Stevens centre working with a HEP C / HIV co-infected patient cohort.

I then trained some more and became a Regional Specialist Trainer for Pfizer, covering most of the above but also specialising in Respiratory... Smoking Cessation, COPD etc.

I moved out of Pharmaceuticals into the NHS to set up and run a Health and Well Being service in two Antenatal units within one NHS Trust.

This was focussed on a holistic approach working with those of child bearing age, Infertility through to two months post- natal. The target was to reduce still birth rates, smoking in pregnancy prevalence and better birth outcomes with Mental Health, Drug and Alcohol addictions.

My priorities for any one I work with is to have their voice heard, Personalised Care plans, Holistic approach, Person centred, Goal setting and Trauma Informed Practice.

I am very excited and keen to see this new role develop and for the results to be shared and welcome any feedback, suggestions, comments that you may have…
