Director
Team DoctorDirector
Mar. 2019A complete, disruptive solution for keeping your workforce happy, healthy and in work There are hundreds of wellness products and gadgets on the market but many rely on input from customers and almost all of them fail to provide adequate, meaningful health information. TeamDoctor provides some of the best health information and education available anywhere. Evaluations and endorsements from the NHS and leading charities validate this. Without correct, effective, well-presented information it is impossible to understand your physical and mental health properly, particularly in a work setting. We are different not only because we offer this information but because we then give people the tools to improve their health – not with fancy devices and gizmos, but really practical tips and techniques which make a big difference to outcomes – proven and evaluated in clinical settings. Combining this with our ability to address any structural and management issues which may be affecting employee performance creates a really innovative and meaningful package of health and productivity interventions.
