An excellent resource for health professionals. It offers such a large variety of relevant up-to-date information, as well as practical tools for patient engagement. – Marie Spreckley, Senior Nutritionist, NHS England

It’s excellent, so thorough and well-presented. I really like the variety in how information is displayed and that it is interactive for the professional. It’s a great use of two hours and I like the fact that there is an assessment at the end to cement your learning. – Divya Bassi, Health and Wellbeing Practitioner, University Hospitals Bristol
