Initial consultation

Start conversations about healthy eating and exercise

As a primary healthcare clinician, you are a key person in helping patients make lifestyle changes. The Healthy Habits pathways support you to start conversations about making lifestyle changes, assess your patient’s readiness for change and if suitable, set up and use Healthy Habits to track their lifestyle changes.

Patient Pathways

During consultation

Identify and set up goals

Use the Patient Pathways to help you work with your to patient to identify healthy eating and physical activity goals.

Discuss the app with your patient and help to download and record their goals.

In the next consultation, use the Resource Hub to find relevant patient resources or information.


During consultation

Connect your patient to the clinician dashboard

A. Click ‘Add a patient’

B. Enter the patient’s name, and their date of birth (optional)

C. Click ‘Generate’ to create a unique QR code

D. To download the Healthy Habits app: Your patient can scan the QR code on your screen, with their mobile, OR you can send them an email or SMS with a link to the QR Code.

Once the app is installed, your patient will be shown on your clinician dashboard. Only the practice that shared the QR code can see the patient’s data.
