What our clients say:

Teresa Dorrian from the Executive Office at Stormont

‘I would like to thank Northern Ireland Chest, Heart and Stroke for giving us the opportunity to take part in the 12-week Well You Programme for staff.  Feedback from staff has been extremely positive.  The program encouraged our employees to make healthy lifestyle choices over the 12 weeks with amazing results!  The program was very well organised and staff felt very comfortable throughout the program – the weekly motivational emails were especially appreciated.  As a result of the Well You Programme, we have a significant number of staff much healthier today!’
